Welcome

  • Hello again MBFS,

    Welcome to the month of February! This February we celebrate kindness, and will work to make Madeira Beach Fundamental a certified kindness school.  This ties in perfectly with Commitment to Character development and conversations taking place during our weekly community circles.  Our school has accepted the School Kindness Challenge!  Kind schools are most effective at helping students succeed, both in school and in life.

    In schools where the stakeholders (students/staff/community) intentionally teach, grow, and celebrate kindness, students feel a great sense of safety, support, and acceptance. A risk free learning environment is created. Students will be participating in lessons to engage and increase their overall empathy, kindness, and school unity. Here at Madeira we believe it’s just nice to be nice.  So this month we will remind our students to take the extra moments to say or do something kind for someone in your family, job, or a complete stranger.  Kindness is about more than being nice to someone else. It’s a learned skill and a habit that needs practice.  The School Kindness Challenge allows us to incorporate kindness into the school day and make kindness a practical, commonplace skill. It’s flexible and customizable. Here are some activities to try:

    Kindness starts with one....

    Try this game of pay-it-forward: anonymously make someone smile, leave behind a card telling them to keep the ripple going. It's easy and fun. You're the scientist and the world is your laboratory. Is kindness truly contagious? There's only one way to find out, give it a try.

    Here are some ideas to get you started:

    • Have a kind word for those who you have contact with.
    • Compliment a stranger sincerely.nnn
    • Smile and laugh more often.
    • Return shopping carts to the store.
    • Write a thank you note to someone.
    • Put little notes in someone's locker that will brighten up their day
    • Share a comic strip or something funny with someone else.
    • Pick up trash or pull some weeds in your neighborhood or on your campus.
    • Give out random acts of kindness buttons, ribbons and books.
    • Send someone an animated greeting card on the internet.
    • Tutor your classmates in a subject that you are good at.
    • Send kindness notes to your classmates/teachers/parents etc.

    We are so excited to celebrate kindness this month.  We have an opportunity to ensure every child goes to a school that is welcoming, patient, and accepting. Enjoy the new month being kind to others and bringing sunshine to the beach.

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Chris Ateek,
    Principal

    Pasta for Penniesmmm

    It’s time for our annual Pennies for Pasta campaign where we collect pennies for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  For several years,  Mad Beach has been their biggest contributor.  Let’s keep that streak alive.  This year every teacher has an online team page where you may make contributions to their class account.  Send this link to friends and family, near and far to help us reach our school goal total of $9000.00.  Starting Monday January 29th, click on the attached  link and search for your student’s homeroom teacher’s name (K-5th grade) or your student’s 1st period teacher (6th -8th grade),  it is that easy.  Also start saving your pennies to  bring them in to be counted during the week of February 19th – 26th.  Thank you for helping make this event a huge success and showing kindness to others.
