Let’s Put the “I” in Kindness and the “Ich” in Freundlich

Our first grade students have been learning so much this school year about historical figures that were kind and did good, despite a sometimes hostile environment.

They learned about St. Martin and Nikolaus in November and December.

In the new year, it is their turn! Most years first grade students watch each other closely and call out acts of kindness that they see.

This year we wanted to take it one step further. Our students presented to the grade school how they can be kind, too! Based on student feedback last year we thought this would be a wonderful way to engage all students and become mindful of even small acts of kindness that make a big difference.

Students also got to put what they’ve learned into action outside of school at a local retirement home, where we played card games, made art work and chatted with the residents there. One teacher reported that, “the joy in the room was coming from all people, small and big, young and old.”

Look for our display of acts of kindness in the lunchroom. And if you are looking for ideas, I will have a display in the lobby, too!

The most important takeaway message here is that no person is too small to make an impact. Let’s be inspired by our GIS students!
