Happy World Kindness Day!!!

Posted on

Hello Families!

Today is World Kindness Day!!! Please talk to your children about the power of kindness! Kindness is contagious! When we treat other people with the kindness that we would want to be treated with we find ourselves in a much happier and peaceful place! We are bucket fillers, right? So let’s continue the kindness that we already show and turn it up a notch as we reach out to those around us with extra kindness.

This weekend please do some acts of kindness! If you would like to keep your acts of kindness a secret, or share them that is up to you! But, maybe you can help your child draw a picture of themselves showing how they felt when they showed kindness!

Thank you for all you do!

Hello Families!

Thank you for another amazing day of learning. love, and laughter. As we end our school day on this Veteran’s Day, let’s take a moment to reflect on how thankful we are for the many brave men and women who have served our country and who are currently serving our country! Let us remember their sacrifice and dedication to our freedoms we so cherish in our amazing country!! Let us also remember and be thankful for the families of these brave men and women who also sacrifice so much for America’s freedom and values!

Thank you Veterans! Thank you, families of Veterans! Thank you to all who have served and who are actively serving our country! I would like to encourage all of you to help your child watch these videos and make a poster to say thank you to not only the Veterans, but also all of the first responders who serve the community members in our country! You can put this poster in the window of your houses for these brave men and women to see so their hearts can feel appreciated!

Thank you for all you do!!! Thank you to all of the many heroes!

Love, Ms. Mehrhof
