SCHOOL UPDATES - WEEK OF 3/12/2023:
MAKING CARING COMMON BOXES
MAKING CARING COMMON BOXES
As part of our Making Caring Common (MCC) initiative, we've set up a table with two boxes by the lunch tables (next to the Lost & Found). One box is for students to contact our MCC Student Council -- whether they are lonely, need someone to talk to, want more friends or would just like to say hello. We encourage students to write their name and classroom number, so a student council member can reach out to them. We think it is a wonderful way to connect our students to the student council and a great way for them to get to know one another.
The other box is for students to write down an act of kindness that they've experienced. It could be anything from someone asking them if they are okay after they fell, to standing up for them, to sharing their lunch. We want to celebrate and acknowledge every act of kindness. We plan to recognize some of these kids at our spirit days and give them buttons to show they are appreciated, which we all know goes a long way — and to serve as motivation for other students.
