How Kindness Rock LMS

Kindness rocks

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." Aesop

It all started with a summer book group of students reading the book, Wonder and then a handful of students who wanted to lead the charge to "choose kindness".  From that moment the Kindness Ambassadors were born.

Teachers had fun sharing their kindness messages by writing them on rocks to place in the front courtyard.  Students hung sticky notes on every locker and staff door, scattering messages of kindness throughout the building and greeting all who entered the school the next morning with a positive message. And this year, Scott Backovich spoke to all of the students and shared the message of the power of their words and their ability to change a person's day by using them well.

The goal this year is to encourage students and staff to choose kindness by putting compliments to each other into the LMS Rock Box.  At the end of the month, we held the first Kindness Celebration!  Each of the three administrators from the elementary schools came to LMS and read aloud the compliments to a group of students who were giving or receiving a compliment.  Everyone enjoyed special treats baked kindly from the dining service and the adults enjoyed the ear to ear smiles of each of the recipients!  The following morning Compliments and Coffee was the same celebration between staff members. The LMS Admin read each of the compliments aloud to groups of staff members who gave or were receiving a compliment and those ear to ear smiles were duplicated again!
Next month students from the HS will be the compliment readers and we are hoping for even more receivers!! 

Here's to a month where everyone chooses kindness!!!
