Kindness Week is Coming- Next Week!!! (updated 9/28/17)

Kindness Week is returning to American Academy! Our school counselors will be hosting the annual Kindness Week October 2-5. The week will be filled with opportunities for students to learn more about what it means to be kind, how our compassion can positively impact those around us, and be able to participate in several kindness-generating activities that they can use to spread kindness to those around them!  Students will participate in classroom discussions, recess/study hall activities, spirit days, the Kindness Counts Challenge, and signing the Kindness Pledge.

Kindness Week spirit days are a great way for students to participate in the excitement of Kindness Week together, but are not required!

Monday, Get InspiRED AA: Wear a red top or spirit gear with your uniform bottom

Tuesday, Kindness from Head to Toe: Wear a crazy hat and crazy socks with your uniform

Wednesday, Super Kind: Wear a super hero t-shirt or other super hero top with your uniform bottom

Thursday, Tied Together by Kindness: Wear a tie or a tie-dye top with your uniform bottom

Parent/guardian volunteers are needed for the recess stations Monday-Wednesday, and time spent helping our students in their kind-activities can be counted toward AA volunteer hours!
