Promote school community by celebrating the best of humanity with your school community.


This unit, written by teacher Billie-Jo Grant, is an All School project.

"As they identified and researched heroes from the nation and world at large, as well as local and regional heroes, students learned to recognize and appreciate “unsung” heroism in themselves, at home, at school, and in their community. The unit is centered on cross-age groupings, and includes online and real-time research, as well as various presentations, including those of outside visitors."

Inspire your students by watching this film, Call to Action Kindness Project. This film shows the efforts of students in 6th grade shared ways to be kind with 2nd grade children to promote a more positive culture in their school and community in Ontario, California.

This photo shows kids in 2nd, 4th and 6th grade working on kindness letters as a way to we combat bullying with kindness. The project consisted of the children picking a name of a fellow club member out of a bag and making them an encouraging card. Every child , 80 in total,  participated in making at least one card and receiving one.

Your students are encouraged to work on letters and cards to promote kindness and within their school community. This can be done as a class activity or older students writing cards for younger students.
