The Kindness Club partnered up with the Fathers’ Club and collected items for Home of the Brave, an organization in Bridgeport that supports our military men and women upon their return from service. A lot of wish list items were collected. Thank you to all who donated items.
The Kindness Club started an #Unselfie movement. We all know what a Selfie is … well we have decided to spread UNSELFISH behavior in our school. We have a large bulletin board in the main lobby titled: #UNSELFIE. Students who exhibit unselfish behaviors — thinking of others before themselves — can join our bulletin board by being nominated by a staff member.
