Random Acts of Kindness

We want to “link up” with students, parents and teachers to help us perform 35,000 acts of kindness.

Between February 1-14, we’re asking students, families and teachers to work toward achieving our goal of 35,000 acts of kindness.

There are strips of paper that can be formed into links for a "Kindness Chain" that we will be displaying in the classroom this week and in our academy hallways next week. Please feel free to grab a strip and add to our chain.

We also encourage you to take photos and video to post to your Academy and personal social media page using the hashtag #KiddieAcademyKindness, to help spread the message of kindness.

Academic All-Stars

In Preschool the class got a chance to sort house hold items into hot and cold categories. Mr. Kenny showed them pictures and allowed them to sort them into the appropriate category. The red side was hot and the blue side was cold. This activity is a great way for the students to develop sorting and charting skills and allows them to record observations and share findings through simple forms of representation, such as pictures, charts and graphs.

"Gahanna is such a warm community" is just one of the compliments we heard at today's ribbon cutting. Special thanks to Gahanna Area Chamber of Commerce for planning such a memorable event and once again showing us such amazing hospitality and kindness.

Thank you to the office of Gahanna Mayor Tom Kneeland and Ohio Attorney General's office for your support and attendance.
