Great Kindness Challenge

Submitted by tiffany.manwaring on Tue, 01/17/2017 - 13:42

Great Kindness Challenge 
You can go to the following website to read more about it. 
The Great Kindness Challenge is one school week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible from a 50 item checklist. The event will take place during the week of January 23rd-27th.  
A printed check list was sent home a couple days ago. I have also attached it to this post as well. Each time a student completes a task they can check it off on their list. 
A small prize will be given to those who complete all 50 of their challenges. They will need to bring their checklist to the front office by Friday, January 27th to collect their prize. 
We appreciate all that you do to make this a wonderful school year. Please let us know if you have any questions and we'll be happy to help. Cheers,
Crystal AverettMiranda Graves
