During the last week of February, students and staff at Hampton Street School celebrated Kindness Week. The main purpose was to reinforce treating others with dignity and respect.To kick off the week, students and staff took part in Pink Shirt Day. They wore pink clothing to symbolize coming together to take a stand against bullying. For the next few days, teachers facilitated lessons and activities focusing on kindness. For example, some classes played freeze tag and when the music stopped, students had to say something kind to the person next to them. In other classes, students took extra time during lessons to compliment their peers on their work and projects. While Kindness Week took place from Feb. 22 to Feb. 26., teachers and staff hope the lessons will stick with their students for weeks and years to come.
