Kindness Week

We will participate in The Great Kindness Challenge during the week of January 28th-February 1st!  The Great Kindness Challenge is a proactive and positive bullying prevention initiative.  It is one week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible.  The Saint James cluster is uniting to recognize acts of kindness across schools.  SJHS, SJMS and SJIS students will be on campus to collaborate and support BES students throughout the week.  

Students will receive a checklist of 50 kindness acts to help them keep track of their acts of kindness.  There will be displays and activities that celebrate and support kindness throughout the building.   

We will collect items throughout the week for our school-wide service learning project.  

Monday, 1/28

-We are collecting canned meat for South Strand Helping Hand. 

Tuesday, 1/29

-We are collecting peanut butter for South Strand Helping Hand
