Virtues

The school virtue for February is “Kindness”

“Kindness is showing you care, doing something good to make life better for others. It is being thoughtful about people’s needs. Kindness is showing love or compassion to someone who is sad or needs your help. Kindness is treating yourself and others gently. It is caring about the earth and all living things.”

You are Kind when you:

*Give tender attention to someone who is sad or needs your help

*Do things to give others happiness

*Practice habits that help the environment (Reduce, Re-use, Re-cycle)

*Resist the temptation to be mean or cruel

*Accept all people, including those who are different

Activities you can do to demonstrate “Kindness”:
*Draw a picture of yourself being kind

*Write a letter to a friend

*Go out to visit a friend or family member that you haven’t seen in a while

*Make a card for a friend or family member

*Take a dog for a walk

*Play games with someone who is feeling lonely or sad

*Give a friend a hug!
