This week, Beverley Manor Elementary students have accepted The Great Kindness Challenge! 
On Monday, students celebrated peace, love & kindness by wearing tie-dye, peace signs and hearts.  Every student wrote at least one kind note to someone of their choice. 
On Tuesday, students showed kindness around the world by wearing something that represents a different culture or country.  They showed kindness to the environment by collecting trash around school.  ​

And on Wednesday...

The Great Kindness Challenge is a week dedicated to performing millions of acts of kindness
on campuses nationwide!

Support Beverley Manor Elementary School during the week of March 20-24, 2017 in creating a safe and caring school environment!

Students at Beverley Manor Elementary are taking the Great Kindness Challenge.  The challenge lasts for one week, March 20 - 24th, and encourages community members and businesses to come together and participate as well.  Each student will receive a list of 50 ways to show kindness and will be challenged to see how many kind deeds they can perform in a week.  Along with the 50 deeds, students will also be working together at school to show kindness to others, the community, the Earth, and the animals of the area.  You can download the free app to take the great kindness challenge as well!
