Windermere "Look for the Good" Project
Windermere School continues their Kindness campaign this year with the "Look for the Good" project that helps kids think differently. Outside the cafeteria is a spot on the floor that students can step on and ponder what makes them grateful. The students also participate in writing letters to people in their lives they are grateful for while placing messages on sticky notes near the main office. Gratefulness promotes kindness! Way to go Windermere School! You can find more info on this project by visiting the "Look for the Good" website.
Windermere School Kindness Campaign
Spearheaded by their principal, David Welch, students at Windermere School have been busy "Joining the Moo-vement!"
In December Youth Services visited students at Windermere and presented an assembly and video. Students in 5th and 6th grade have formed a "Student Ambassadors" group where they have been brainstorming ways to spread kindness throughout their school.
A contest was held to name the Kindness Cow by 6th graders; and 5th graders have been decorating miniature paper cows with positive messages for students in grades K-4. They secretly go into a classroom while at recess and places the kindness cows around their classrooms!
The last week in September Ellington Middle School held an assembly for students about their Ally Program and the Decide To Be Kind campaign was introduced to them. Plans are underway for follow up conversations in the health classes about kindness and the role they can have creating a positive school climate at Ellington Middle School.
Way to go EMS!
Rise Above, Ellington's student leadership group for high school students, sponsored Dodgeball for 7th and 8th grade students at Ellington Middle School on Saturday on December 5th.
This year's theme: Decide To Be Kind.
