Fill a kindness jar with various random acts of kindness and have students and staff take one to do
Put positive sticky notes on cubbies or lockers
Start a bulletin board dedicated to acknowledging kindness students and staff have seen in the class and around the school
Create and share a kindness calendar with a different act of kindness for every day of the month
Start staff meetings or the school day with an inspiring video such as this one featuring ALS patient Chris Rosati
Have students play a kindness game
Start a class or school fundraiser for a charity
Remember to show appreciation to custodians and other support staff
