The Great Kindness Challenge is a positive, proactive bullying prevention initiative, reaching millions of students during the last full week of January every year. The Great Kindness Challenge was created by Kids for Peace to provide schools a tool for creating a positive school environment and a culture of kindness. In 2017, 10,493,866 students participated and performed over half a billion acts of kindness nationwide. Main Street School will be joining The Great Kindness Challenge this year to demonstrate solidarity in this effort. From January 22nd to the 26th, Main Street School students from kindergarten through age 21 will be working cooperatively across classrooms to create service learning projects for the community as well as participating in individual kindness challenges. Some of the student-organized projects include making lap blankets for a senior center, celebrating local first responders, delivering toys to the Longmont Library, and other activities that explore needs in our school, environment, and community. Stay tuned to learn more about Main Street School’s participation in this nationwide event!
