In March for our service focus, we will be talking a lot about kindness. We will take opportunities to be kind to our school building, our friends, and even people we don’t know.
Mrs. Roxanne’s class kicked off our Acts of Kindness month by donating some baby dolls to the memory-care residents at Cottonwood Creek. A generous friend of Mrs. Roxanne’s donated several extra baby dolls and the class decided that instead of keeping a bunch of extra dolls that they may or may not play with, that they could be kind and give them to others. Memory care patients are often soothed by getting to hold a baby doll, much in the same way that young children are soothed by holding a stuffed animal. Nursing homes are grateful for donations such as these in order to provide multiple therapy options to their residents.
Stay tuned for more ways that our students demonstrate acts of kindness throughout the month!
