Mrs. Niessen’s 4th grade class has been focusing kindness. Recently, they hosted a Random Acts of Crazy Kindness (RACK) Week! Every day they picked a card with a random act to bless people both inside and outside of their classroom. Here’s how their RACK week racked up!
Monday: Write a Thank you card to a school helper. Philimon and a friend in the classroom who had helped them recently.
Tuesday: Make a card for a friend. A friend in a different grade than 4th and a friend in our class
Wednesday: Ask someone how you can help them today. Mrs. Niessen emailed the staff and asked what we could do for them. The kids helped Mrs, Oberg, Mrs. Bruneau, Mrs. Smitsdorff, Mrs. Henderson, Ms. Buchelt, Mrs. Beyers, Mrs. Christian, Mrs. Kubiszewski, Mrs. Coolbroth, and Mrs. Kubly. They also helped each other clean our their desks.
Thursday: Throw away someone else’s trash in the cafeteria. They helped other kids at lunch. They helped pick up trash when it fell in our classroom.
Friday: Let only kind words come out of your mouth. We tried to curb our responses if someone said or did something we didn’t like both in the classroom and outside of it.
Over the week, the 4th grader handled themselves very responsibly and earned many compliments. It was neat to see them working in different classrooms, interacting with middle school and high school teachers, and blessing others.
This week was a complete success!!!!
