Frenchtown School
Tuesday, Nov. 13, was World Kindness Day. At their meeting last week the Kindness Club made a treat for each classroom. Kindness Jar: Each class received a jar which was for the class to keep. Students and teachers will write kind thoughts or compliments to one another and put it in the jar. Teachers can decide when to share them. Every classroom will get a copy of Kindness cards. You can choose to use this or not.

K-2 teachers have a template of a Kindness book if they want to use it.
