On Monday, January 28th, Woodrow Wallace Elementary kicked off its 2nd annual Great Kindness Challenge – School Edition. The staff and students at Woodrow Wallace Elementary want to proactively create a culture of kindness on their campus. With all that’s going on in the country and in the world, there is a call for kindness. The Great Kindness Challenge answers that call and provides an opportunity for students to unite and demonstrate that KINDNESS MATTERS. The Great Kindness Challenge – School Edition is one week where students do as many kind acts as possible, choosing from a 50-item checklist. What started with three Carlsbad schools in 2012, has now grown to over 10 million students in all 50 states. This positive, proactive, and powerful week will mobilize our students to create a school climate that is respectful, compassionate, happy, and kind. The Wallace Huskies have set a goal to complete over 12,000 acts of kindness during the week of January 28th through February 1st. They have committed to this pledge “We pledge to be a little more kind each day”.
