School events and activities to help support a safe and caring school environment include grade 6-8 guidance lessons, school-wide Advisory activities, morning kindness stations, and the creation of “kindness cards” with kind actions to be performed by staff and students. Massabesic Middle School, in collaboration with Kids for Peace, is sponsoring the event.
“We are thrilled to be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge at MMS this year. Our work will be an extension of our Advisory curriculum, and will be another way for us to continue to foster the supportive climate and culture we have here at MMS. The ideas that go into fostering kindness; the self-awareness, the interpersonal skills, the responsible decision-making, are all critical to student success. We hope to see many of our community members become involved in the Challenge!” Angela Scully, Assistant Principal
The Great Kindness Challenge was created by Kids for Peace to provide schools a tool for creating a positive school environment. In 2015 2,188,669 students participated and performed over 100 million acts of kindness nationwide.
