I am somebody
I was somebody when I came
I will be a better somebody when I leave
I am powerful, and I am strong
I deserve the education that I get here
I have things to do, people to impress, and places to go
REACH HIGH, RESPECT AND REACH OUT TO ONE ANOTHER!
During the week of Feb. 13-17, Idle Hour Elementary School students celebrated the districtwide Dignity for All Students Week, which coincided with Kindness Week. Throughout the week’s activities, students learned that by showing respect and dignity for others daily, they can spread more love, kindness and gratitude and create a more peaceful world without conflict.
In the spirit of kindness, fifth grade students invited their “Grandfriends” from The Arbors Assisted Living facility to work on a Valentine’s Day craft, a love bug, and to play a game of Valentine’s Day bingo in the school library. Not only did the students and their guests complete the task at hand, but they became reacquainted with one another. The students have been visiting their grandfriends for several school years and have formed valuable relationships.
Other schoolwide activities during Kindness Week included signing a dignity pledge, student government members reading their ideas about spreading kindness, attending Northwell Health assemblies about becoming one’s best self, and attending an assembly about empathy, kindness and being kind.
