“Kindness” is our character education value for February and that means that we show others that they are valuable by how we treat them. We want to show acts of kindness such as holding the door for someone else, loaning a pencil, or helping someone who is upset to feel better. Sometimes just saying a few kind words to someone else can help everyone have a better day. We can all look for chances daily to demonstrate kindness. Please talk with your family and friends about ways people have been kind to them. Some books about kindness that you may enjoy are Louie by Ezra Jack Keats, Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White, The Great Gilly Hopkins by Katherine Paterson, and Miss Bindergarten Stays Home From Kindergarten by Joseph Slate. Have a wonderful February spreading as much kindness as possible!
