This month Lincoln School is focusing on the hard character trait-Kindness. Kindness is a behavior marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern for others. It is known as a virtue, and recognized as a value in many cultures. We will be teaching students to do something/say something kind for no reason. Teachers will identify acts of kindness in books and in situations. Parents can help us by modeling kindness: by holding a door for someone, greeting someone with a smile or writing a note in your child’s lunchbox. We will be emphasizing kindness by participating in The Great Kindness Challenge. Kindness matters.
“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge
that one day someone might do the same for you.” –Princess Diana
