2016 Kindness Challenge

2016 Kindness Challenge
During the week of January 18, following the Martin Luther King holiday, our school participated in the The Great Kindness Challenge. The purpose was to help us to:
  • -create a culture of kindness
  • -increase tolerance, unity, and respect
  • -reduce bullying
  • -empower students of all ages
  • -create a positive change
  • -reduce stress
On Tuesday, January 19, some of our students helped to kick off the week with a script they had practiced. It was read from the office of our principal, Mrs. Hair. The students did a dynamic job. The reading of the script was followed by the playing of the Kind-Hearted Hand song over the intercom. The song with video was made available to all teachers to play in their classroom during the week.

Classroom Spotlight - Mrs. Sewell’s Class

Classroom Spotlight - Mrs. Sewell’s Class
Chrisitne Sewell, classroom teacher in the Teszler Division and LBSW, Denise Thomas of the Rehabilitative Behavioral Health Services have been working with the fourth and fifth graders on solving conflict. The students were given two activities so they could visualize how it is important to solve conflict. In the first, a “Tug of War,” the students acted as opponents to solve a conflict where they worked against each other. They were encouraged to solve a conflict like the second activity, pictured, where two students were tied with a rope and had to work together to get themselves loose. The rules they addressed in solving conflict were 1. Identify the problem. 2. Focus on the problem. 3. Attack the problem, not the person. 4. Listen with an open mind. 5. Treat the other person’s feelings with respect. 6. Take responsibility for your actions. Click Read More to see a photo of the class.
