Kindness Club 2018-2019

The Kindness Club is partnering up with the Fathers’ Club. On April 4th the Frenchtown Kindness Club and their families gathered to begin the process of creating the Ben’s Bells tile mosaic Kindness Tree. Jane Adams from Ben’s Bells guided the group in the tile making process. Jane guided participants to decorate and personalize hundreds of tiles that will be included in our school mosaic. The tiles will be fired and then returned to school so that every student and staff member has an opportunity to paint the tiles for the mural. The mural will be installed and unveiled in the Frenchtown lobby in May. This project was made possible by the generous support of our amazing Father’s Club. The Father’s Club set up and served dinner and refreshments to all those that attended. The Kindness Club advisors Jen Olimpieri, Lindsey Carley, Bethany Gambardella, and Maggie Pereira would like to thank the Kindness Club participants and their families for joining us for such a wonderful night.

The Kindness Club continues an #Unselfie movement! We all know what a Selfie is…well we have decided to spread UNSELFISH behavior in our school!

We have a large Bulletin Board in the main lobby titled: #UNSELFIE. Students who exhibit unselfish behaviors – thinking of others before themselves – can join our bulletin board by being nominated by a staff member.
