Dear Sierra Verde Community,

January ended on a note of Kindness as our students participated in the Great Kindness Challenge of 2017. In tradition with our theme of Spreading Kindness like Confetti, Sierra Verde students took on the task of completing kindness checklists and intentionally demonstrating acts of kindness. The Great Kindness Challenge is a positive initiative to promote kind cultures. Sierra Verde joined over 61 countries and 5 million students in the pledge to kindness.

We would like to thank the Glendale Police Department, Glendale Fire Department, and Councilwoman Tomalchoff for starting off our week with a Kindness Tunnel in a BIG way.  Throughout the week, our  students completed Random Acts of Kindness Checklists and participated in lunchtime kindness activities.  

Every day, stories of kindness cross my desk. I thought I would share just a few with you. Before break, a group of 4th grade students asked me if they could start a club to spread kindness. Mrs. A. Smith willingly agreed to sponsor the group and they created their first mural last week. A 5th grade student also approached me, asking if she could start a club that she envisioned as part of her Genius Hour. She wanted her club to show girls that they can do anything. If you have students in 3rd – 5th grade, you may have recently seen the flier advertising her positively motivated club as well, sponsored by Mrs. Anderson. And then, there was a letter, written by a 4th grade boy, that was given to a classmate, letting her know just how unique and special she is. Kindness also comes in our middle school students reading to 2nd grade students.  We hope that the Kindness Challenge will spark ongoing acts of kindness at SV & in the community. Whatever the age, we all know that …

 

Sincerely,

Paula Tseunis
