-We had a GREAT 100th day (and week!) We sang fun 100 day songs, made a 100 day trail mix, read 100 day stories, made 100 day hats, and lots of other crafts! The kids enjoyed parading through the 1st grade and office to show off their 100 day shirts. You guys are very creative, by the way! Also, thanks to those who I asked to send in the 100 day goodies! We appreciate it.
It was so nice seeing everyone at our 100th Day Celebration!! I am so proud of our kiddos!! 🙂
**Here is some info from our guidance counselor, Mrs. Kotarba:
As part of our “No Place for Hate” program, we are looking forward to participating in the Kindness Challenge from January 28th-February 1st.
The students will work together as a class to complete activities to show kindness such as, asking a new friend to play, helping someone, writing a thank you note, or performing a kind act of their own design. Teachers will have daily discussions, read stories, and watch short video clips about showing kindness, inclusion, and respect.
Additionally, we will show kindness in our community by hosting a toiletries drive to benefit The Center for Children and Young Adults AND SafePath Children’s Advocacy Center. With the help of our Student Council, we will be collecting items such as shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, etc. These items will go to children in our community. A flyer with more information will come home about this.
We will also have some fun by dressing up to the following themes each day.
Monday (1/28)-Hats off to kindness (wear hats)
Tuesday (1/29)-Being kind is groovy (wear 70s clothes)
Wednesday (1/30)-Kindness Rocks (wear rock star clothes)
Thursday (1/31)-Cougars are Kind (wear Cougar Pride or school colors)
Friday (2/1)-Cheer for Kindness (wear sports clothes)
