We encourage everyone to take this week to step out of your normal routine or comfort zone and attempt a new random act of kindness each day to celebrate the week. Throughout the week, we will also be hosting events at lunch such as PSA announcements, Random Acts of Kindness, and a Pledge Chain. The dance team will be teaching students and interested faculty/staff the One Billion Rising dance the last 15 minutes of lunches in the green space by the Senior Patio area.

Post your Random Acts of Kindness in the Cafeteria everyday at lunch!

We will also be hosting our third Unity Day of the year on Thursday, Feb. 12 in the gym. See Ms. Painter for more information and to pick up a permission slip.

The week will culminate with the “One Billion Rising” dance on Friday afternoon before dismissal to promote awareness of domestic violence. This is an international movement to bring awareness and also to celebrate pride and respect.
