What happens when an entire school district intentionally focuses on kindness for a year? BISD is about to find out!
To say the last two+ years have been challenging is an understatement. A recent poll by the American Psychological Association found that stress levels in our country are alarmingly high. And, when people are maxed out with stress, it’s difficult to find the bandwidth to extend kindness to others.
BISD hopes the BISD Kind campaign strengthens relationships, provides a framework for interactions and helps promote a positive environment for students, staff and the greater Bainbridge Island community.
ACTIVITIES SURROUNDING BISD KIND INCLUDE:
- An optional all-district read of the book Deep Kindness by Houston Kraft.
- District-wide Acts of Kindness & Spirit Weeks
- Kindness is in Our Veins (community blood drive, TBD)
- Collaborating with community partners to further the reach of the theme
