Building on the momentum of the Kindness Project spearheaded by the Helping Hands club, our January spirit assembly focused on “Coloring Avoca West with Kindness.” Our ambassadors found a video to share that set the tone for our assembly.
Then the group adapted an Korean folktale called “Heungbu and Nolbu.” Students decided that the story had two key messages – be kind even when it is hard and kindness spreads. We adapted the story to reflect these messages while placing it in a modern school setting with contemporary characters. The story was told by a group of our 4th grade ambassadors.
Ambassadors also decided to start a Random Act of Kindness challenge for the school. For January and February, we are filling a bulletin board with a rainbow of acts of kindness.
