  • Today begins “Random Acts of Kindness Week.”  And it would be so “kind of you” to participate!  So here to tell us more about the kind of kindness we’re looking for — is Ms. Jones!
  • Good morning! I’m Ms. Jones, and I’d like to tell you a few simple ways that we can all be “kind” for Random Acts of Kindness Week.  We perform Random Acts of Kindness whenever we are considerate and help another person. There are three simple steps:  First, find out what another person needs. For example, Sally has her hands full and needs help opening the door. Next, imagine how YOU would feel if you had that need.  It’s so FRUSTRATING when you can’t open the door!  Then finally, offer to help. Hold the door open for Sally — and you’ve just completed a Random Act of Kindness. There are countless ways to show someone that you care. So this week, look for opportunities to be kind.  Thanks, wolves!
