ADDITIONAL UPDATES AND REMINDERS:
October Kindness Challenge Reminder:
Continuing the Making Caring Common tradition that was started last year by Ms. H. Lee and Ms. Hong, we will be having another school-wide October Kindness Challenge for three weeks (from October 9 — 27). Every classroom will have a "100 acts of kindness" chart. As the students complete kind acts, their initials will be added to one of the hearts. The first four classrooms to fill up the chart and have all students participate will receive pumpkins for the whole class. Every class that completes the chart will be entered into a raffle to win a pizza party donated by Village Pizzeria on Larchmont. We will hold the raffle and announce the winning classroom during the November 3 Spirit Day!
Help your students and households can practice developing empathy at home with this worksheet: How To Help Kids Develop Empathy
