Fayston School Celebrates Kindness Challenge- February 13-17, 2017

The students, staff, and community of Fayston School will be celebrating the
Great Kindness Challenge the week of February 13-17
All kids deserve to learn in a safe, supportive and dynamic environment. The Great Kindness Challenge actively engages students, teachers, administration, families, and community in creating a school culture of acceptance, tolerance, unity and respect. Simply put, we believe that KINDNESS is
a strength and has the power to change the world for GOOD!

The Great Kindness Challenge is one week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible.  Look for some ideas in your child's backpack!

​As the adults in children's lives, we are their role models. Challenge yourself throughout your week to try new acts of kindness towards others. Make a point to talk about it each night. Whether at the dinner table or in the car, instead of asking your child, "How was your day?" try "In what ways were you KIND today?"​ See what happens!"
