It’s Cool To Be Kind week

Cool to be Kind Week 2011

This week is Cool To Be Kind Week in Barriere.  Everyone is encouraged to preform random acts of kindness – this can be as simple as smiling and saying hello to those you pass in the street.

There are many, many ways you can participate in being kind to others: give someone a flower, visit a sick friend, offer a hug, make a new friend, open a door for someone, help carry a load, share a snack, thank a teacher or mentor, read to a young child, lend a hand, leave a thank you note, offer your seat, be tolerant, let someone else go first, bake cookies to share, give a compliment, respect others, encourage a friend, or offer to walk a dog.

Barriere Secondary students will be doing several things this week to celebrate Cool to Be Kind Week.  On Tuesday they will send Candy Grams, on Wednesday they will have a movie in the gym with popcorn and hot chocolate, on Thursday they will visit Barriere Elementary, and on Friday they will have a ‘Buddy Tracker Day’.

Barriere Elementary students are planning some activities, but these will take place in a few weeks.
