CISB was transformed into a hub of compassion during Kindness Week, where students participated in a variety of activities to spread a culture of kindness across all grades.
Elementary school students were actively involved in various lessons. They engaged in a ‘Compliment Chain’ to encourage a continuous exchange of kind words. Additionally, ‘Kindness Rocks’ was a creative activity where students painted rocks and papers with goodwill messages to surprise their peers.
Storytime sessions were another key feature, with kindness-themed books sparking discussions on the importance of being considerate. This allowed students to reflect on and internalize the message of kindness.
A significant highlight was when students from grades 3 to 10 collectively formed the word ‘kindness’ during a photo op on the soccer field. The distribution of wristbands inscribed with ‘Choose Kindness’ became the week’s fashion statement, symbolizing a shared commitment to the cause. A writing and art contest further celebrated kindness through various forms of expression.
This week created a renewed sense of community among students, underscoring the understanding that kindness, in all its forms, is a strength to be nurtured and cherished. It served as a poignant reminder of the warmth of the CISB student body and the special community we have collectively cultivated.
