The Great Kindness Challenge 2017

As actor Morgan Freeman once said, “How do we change the world? One random act of kindness at a time.”    During the week of February 21st-24th, the LVA Aevidum team and the Elementary School 4-6 students and staff, participated in the Great Kindness Challenge.  

gkc4What is Aevidum you ask?  Aevidum translates to “I’ve Got Your Back”.  The high school team is available to listen, comfort, advise, and acknowledge each student knowing that this is a judgment-free zone.  This means that you will not be alone because you have a support system. Thank you to our High School Aevidum team for partnering on this awesome event.

The Great Kindness Challenge is a powerful event that actively engages students, teachers and families in helping to create a school culture of unity, respect, and acceptance. Check out some of the amazing things going on…….

The students in grade 4-6 were all given a copy of 50 suggested acts of kindness they cgkcthermometerould demonstrate to others throughout the week.  For those students that completed at least 25 acts of kindness from the list, a certificate of recognition was awarded. Check out our Kindness Thermometer!  

A kindness station was set up and students wrote special messages to their peers, thank you notes to the person of their choice, and decorated posters to hang throughout the gkc3school.

Each student will be given a link to write a time someone has shown kindness to them and all links will be attached together to make a schoolwide chain of kindness.  We will end the week gkc2with our grade level monthly assemblies to celebrate our accomplishments throughout February.
