Pioneer Elementary "Thinks Kindness"
Over the next few weeks, Pioneer Elementary is participating in a "Think Kindness" campaign locally and beyond. The effort began with an assembly for students where the engaging, high-energy guest speaker named Gary Xavier challenged Pioneer to become the “Most Inspiring School in America” From there, there the school set two goals to meet the challenge: First the school is committed to making 5000 acts of kindness. Students record their efforts in a journal. Additionally, over the next few weeks the site will be spreading kindness worldwide by collecting 1082 pairs of gently-used shoes to donate to a community in need. The school has even launched a "kindness crew" (a group of 5th and 6th graders) who deliver inspiring quotes and ideas for kindness each morning and keeping the campus posted on progress toward meeting their goals. Many thanks to the staff, students as well as volunteer parents on PTA and Climate Committee who are making this happen!
