 Rachel's Challenge Kindness Clubs are going  strong at Cedar Wood!  Kids from grades 1-5 meet once a week during their lunch and recess time.  During these meetings, students learn a kindness lesson, then do an activity to promote kindness and compassion at Cedar Wood and beyond.  All students have an opportunity to participate in Kindness Club - students rotate through each month.  As members of Kindness Club, they are leaders and positive examples for the rest of the school.  After each session they share with their classmates what they have learned in Kindness Club.

So far, our Kindness Club kids have assisted with our food and toiletry drives in the fall.  They have also made holiday cards for a local retirement community and have supported Operation Bald Eagle by making Valentine cards for our troops.  Every month the kids have an opportunity to write positive messages on sticky notes which they post on students' lockers throughout the school.  This is a simple act of kindness that they all really enjoy and can make a big difference in someone's day.
