What does it mean to be a Holy Family eagle? Each month the students will focus on these different qualities. The first quality is kindness. During the month of September, the students will focus on what it means to be kind. The last two years, HFS sponsored a Kindness Week to kick off the school year. This year, HFS is using the month of September to focus on kindness. This will help set the tone for the rest of the school year!During the month of September, each day will begin with a kindness quote shared after the school-wide morning prayer. The quote will be discussed in each classroom and hopefully implemented throughout the day.
Through the classroom guidance lessons, the students will learn what it means to be an upstander when they see another person being treated unkindly. They will also assemble birthday boxes for the students at Green Valley Elementary School. In addition, the students will be challenged to complete random acts of kindness for others. Other activities include writing a letter to an elderly person from the parish, making positive yard signs, and creating rocks with a positive messages. The weekly update will highlight different acts of kindness that are taking place throughout the month. The month will end with a Kindness Rally!
