Devers K – 8

Devers completes 15-Day ‘Kindness Challenge’

Posted on November 25th, 2018

All Devers K-8 classrooms recently participated in a 15-Day Kindness Challenge. Each classroom chose a project and participated. Here are a few examples:

• Writing motivational sayings on pencils and delivering to students
• Making thank-you cards for military members and first responders
• Making ‘Kindness Matters’ signs and hanging them throughout the school
• Knitting scarves for veterans
• Creating a “Believe in Your Selfie” photo wall with kind words about each student
• Being pen-pal buddies with other classrooms and writing kindness cards back and forth
• Making a written plan to sit with a new friend at lunch for 15 days
• Making cards and giving to family members telling them how much they are loved
• Creating a Kindness Tree in the classroom
• Painting rocks and pay-it-forward positive messages throughout the community
• Doing a collection and donating items to the SPCA
• Writing positive notes to all teachers and staff
• Creating kindness notes and attaching them to candy and giving them to random students who need extra inspiration

And as the culmination of this project, every student colored a square to add to our ‘Devers Kindness Quilt.’

For November, Devers completed the Give Thanks & Give Back service learning project by filling shoe boxes of donated items for kids in foreign countries who live in less fortunate situations.

As a school, we filled 34 shoe boxes! Shoe boxes were delivered to LCBC in York, which transported the boxes to Samaritan’s Purse, the organization doing the shoe box project.
