This week we celebrated random acts of kindness by recognizing our classmates and friends for the kind things they do each day. Students had the chance to pick an act of kindness they wanted to complete by the end of the week and display it for the whole school to see. Students also wrote down acts of kindness that others completed toward them, to be looped in a school wide chain of kindness. This week is just a beautiful reminder that the world is colored with kindness. It just takes one act of kindness to brighten someone's day. Remember to be kind!
This week we took time to discuss the power of failure and what one can do with their failure. Truly, failure is a chance to learn and grow. The power of YET is a facet of growth mindset, which empowers students, parents, and teachers to believe in their ability to grow in mental capacity. It was important for the students to be reminded that a failure can be the next step in one's success and as Nick Foles says "[failure] is an opportunity for your character to grow." Remember to always encourage your students to ask what else can I do? What can I do more of? It's important to be reflective on what you have done and what you can do more of.
