Lafayette Elementary prepares to make Kindness a Habit!
We are partnering with Born This Way Foundation and the city of Lafayette on their challenge to make kindness a habit. It reportedly takes 21 days to build a habit, we're making Kindness one of them!
What does #BeKind21 hope to accomplish?
From the Born This Way Foundation: BeKind21 is an invitation to think about and prioritize how you are caring for yourself and how you’re taking care of those around you. We hope #BeKind21 is an opportunity for students, teachers, and families to kick off the new school year by establishing kinder habits that will last all year and for everyone else to head into fall with spirits of compassion and action.
What will #BeKind21 look like at our school?
Each week we will grow our "Kindness Circle". We will start with you, then grow to include your family, school, community and world. Browse through our Kindness Kits below and make Kindness a Habit with your family this September.
