2nd Grade Kindness Project

Screen Shot 2018-09-17 at 12.23.47 AM

Kindness is a learned skill.  As part of our kindness theme this year and service learning goal, students are challenged to complete one kind act this year.  Use the padlet below to document the awesome projects your children are doing to spread kindness around the school and in their communities.  You can include pictures and/or videos if you’d like.  I can’t wait to see all the awesome ideas you come up with!

Please remember: The project is due November 30, 2018.

Have fun spreading kindness!
