May 16 -23, 2016 - Student Leadership Council voted to undertake the 1,000 Thank Yous CHALLENGE! We are the first elementary school to join the challenge to Share Gratitude, Spread Joy and Change Lives.
An email from Melinda Forward, the director of The School Culture Project, explaining the project: ‘As the director of The School Culture Project, I am excited to welcome you to the 1,000 Thank Yous CHALLENGE! This is going to be an exciting experience! You will be surprised by your students. Let's make this the BEST month of the year, yet! Why? This challenge is about connecting in a personal and meaningful way with gratitude. This is a busy time of year in schools. So often, we are so busy, we don’t take time to stop and tell people how much we appreciate them. It’s not that we don’t appreciate one another. We just don’t stop and take the time to express it.
The 1000s Thank Yous Challenge is simple, write and share 1,000 hand-written Thank You notes in 10 days, or less. The notes can be written to someone on campus, or not. Explaining what you appreciate about that person is important.
