Friday, February 17th was National Random Act of Kindness Day. At the middle school, Student Council - Difference Makers decided to give each student a small burst of kindness as they walked into the building, posted positive affirmations on each locker and gave small tokens of appreciation to each faculty and staff member. Additionally, it was a House Assembly and Activity Day at the middle school. After the monthly assembly, students broke up into their House mentor groups to have discussions about kindness, create hearts with positive character traits about fellow House members and took on the challenge of creating the tallest tower out of hearts! What a great National Random Act of Kindness Day and a wonderful way to start Mid-Winter Break!
Have a safe and fun Mid-Winter Recess!

Knowing that the needs of our students and their families may still be present over the break, we want to make sure that our community knows that, while the school is closed, Connected Community Schools is still working and able to connect with families to meet their needs. Each building will have a site coordinator on-site over the break. Site coordinators are not working on 12/23, 12/26 and 1/2. On-call CCS staff will be available 24/7.
