All students received their own GKC checklist (the GKC checklist can be found on the GKC website) with 50 kind deeds to perform. In order to spark excitement, I created a competition between homeroom classes to find out which class is the kindest. The class that completed the most acts of kindest would be crowned "the kindest class in school", and would receive a special bagel breakfast to celebrate their kindness!
Students and staff really got into the competition! The kindest class performed 545 acts of kindness, and in total my school did over 5000 acts!
I also organized a kindness matters posters contest for students to participate in. I was overwhelmed by the amount of beautiful and thoughtful posters I received! Here are just a few examples:
The details of the poster contest can be found here. This is a copy of the promotional flyer I sent home to families. Feel free to change them to meet your needs!
Did your school celebrate The Great Kindness Challenge? How do you promote kindness in your building?
