Greetings Kincaid Families!
We are all so fortunate to belong to a loving and caring community, and over the next few weeks, Kincaid is hosting several opportunities to show kindness and generosity to others! If you can, please pick and choose what might be a good fit for your family. This could be as simple as involving your child in a trip to the Dollar Store and talking to him/her about giving to others who are less fortunate….or just talking to your child about kindness, sharing and gratitude.
This Week…January 22 – 25 PTA Hat & Mitten Drive
Your donations of new hats, mittens or socks will go to those in need through MUST Ministries.
Next Week…January 28 – February 1st Kindness Week
As part of Kincaid’s “No Place for Hate” program, we will be encouraging our students will be participating in the Kindness Challenge during Kindness Week. 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 collect items such as shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, etc. These items will go to children in our community.
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 70’s 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)
Week of February 4 – 8 – Enrichment Teacher Supply Drive
PTA is coordinating a collection of Lysol wipes, band-aids, plastic baggies, tissues, air fresheners, hand wipes, etc. for our Enrichment teachers during this sniffling time of the year. Bins will be located throughout the school.
I will close by expressing my gratitude to you! It is noticed and appreciated that our families support Kincaid by volunteering, contributing to the Kincaid Foundation, participating in our events and spirit nights, partnering with us in your child’s education…and sending us your best every day!
Have a great week!
