The Great Kindness Challenge 2021

The Great Kindness Challenge 2021
Posted on 01/14/2021

Finley Elementary School will be participating in The Great Kindness Challenge for our fifth year in a row on January 25-29, 2021! Your child will bring home a letter explaining more about The Great Kindness Challenge the week of January 18th. During the challenge week, they will have a Kindness Checklist to bring home to work on kind acts as part of their at-home learning during distance learning days.

To be counted in their class total, all Kindness Checklists will need to be returned to their teacher January 21st or 22nd when they return to school. The classes with the highest class average of kindness checks will earn a special treat! Kindergarten and 1st grade classes are competing against each other as are 2nd and 3rd grade classes and 4th and 5th grade classes.

We will also have kindness themed spirit days:
  • Monday & Tuesday (Jan. 25-26) – Shine BRIGHT with kindness (wear bright colors)
  • Thursday & Friday (Jan. 28-29) – POWERED by kindness (dress like a superhero)

In addition we will be holding a Kindness Picture Contest for Kindergarten-1st grade and a Kindness Essay Contest for 2nd-5th grade. Both contests are optional, but a winner from each grade level will receive a special treat and award.

Let’s show our school and community just how KIND we can be!
