February Is Kindness Month

This February, Buckman is participating in a school-wide initiative focusing on kindness. Throughokindness_calut the month, students at all grade levels will be encouraged to focus on kindness in every day challenges, specific programs, and dedicated projects.

The Month of Kindness kicked off with the Sandy Hook Promise program “Start with Hello,” aimed at encouraging students to reach out to those who may be experiencing social isolation. You may have also noticed the compliment board and kindness calendar located in the front lobby of the school. Stop by and see what students are up to, as well as the kind words they have to share with one another.

Screen Shot 2017-02-09 at 15.48.15The culminating event will take place March 3rd, when the school will come together to paint and decorate rocks with uplifting messages as part of the Kindness Rocks project. Students will bring rocks home to discuss what they have learned about kindness, and they can then place the rocks out in the community. There will be a great need for parent volunteers on March 3rd to make this wonderful project take off, so please consider signing up in one of two ways:

  • If you have small to medium size river rocks or want to donate paint pens or spray paint please sign up here: http://signup.com/go/ZHj2o4 and  bring them to Wendy Crozier in room 101 by Thursday, February 23rd.
  • If you would like to sign up to help on the day of the event, please go to  http://signup.com/go/npDthr
