October: Kindness

This month, our FLEX team is focusing on learning more about KINDNESS!
Kindness: the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. In our classes we will be talking about ways that we can practice being kind.
As a community, our goal this month is to say something kind to another person at least once a day to bring more kindness into our world! 

Here are some ways that your family can learn more about kindness together!
-How to capture caring moments

-Love: Greater Good Parenting

To talk more about Kindness, this month in Elementary classes we will be reading the book:
How Full is Your Bucket? For Kids by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer

We also have an extra Kindness Challenge for our Secondary students to: Perform at least 5 intentional acts of kindness in 1 day!
For each day you complete this challenge, fill out this form to be entered to win a Dutch Bros. gift card.
