  • Jamerson’s 180 Days of Kindness

    We believe that our world needs A LOT more kindness!  We are challenging the scholars, staff, parents and families to 180 days of kindness.  There are 180 days of school each year and we are challenging you to be kind each and every day.  Each day you will learn about a new way to be kind, you will learn about different customs from around the world, and/or you will learn something new each day about how to be kind.  How to be kind to yourself, how to be kind to others, even how to be kind to our world.  We hope that you take us up on our challenge and that by the end of our 180 days together this school and community will be the kindest ever!  Some days it may be easy, some days could be a bit more challenging, but either way, it is so worth it-love and kindness need to win! 

    Visit our "180 Days of Kindness" shortcut on our homepage under "Site Shortcuts" for this week's kindness challenge!!!
