This week will we will conclude our Crazy for Kindness fundraiser. Our students have done an outstanding job of completing random acts of kindness (RAoK) as a way to pay forward pledges they received from family and friends. Helping out around home (without being asked!), sending notes of gratitude, baking for a neighbour, inviting others to join in a group, donating to a local charity, holding the door open for the person behind, greeting guests in the school with eye contact and a smile, and the list goes on. The students at RMB took this challenge head on and the results have been outstanding! We are so proud of all of their efforts. However, we know that the kindness will not end simply because our fundraiser wraps up this Thursday. We know our students will continue to model the importance of being a positive and contributing member of our community and beyond. #creatingtomorrowtogether
Kindness doesn’t cost a thing.
On January 27th, we will be taking time as a school to engage in Family Literacy Day. This is celebrated internationally as a day to really focus on the importance of Literacy in the lives of all, with the emphasis on the impact family engagement can have on the Literacy success and achievement of students. Our staff leadership is evident once again through our united commitment to our school and division priorities around Literacy achievement for all. The Literacy Council at RMB has created a fun activity and they encourage all families to participate in the Family Literacy BINGO. BINGO cards will be sent home with all students early this week. We hope you enjoy these great ideas as a way to make Literacy a family activity in your home.
