“Be Kind Week” is a Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) event designed to inspire students to build a strong school community by recognizing kindness and appreciation in a fun and meaningful way.
Last week, students at Travis Ranch School had daily lessons, lunchtime activities and were able to participate in spirit wear days. Preppy K through fifth grade had lessons that focused on kindness, being polite, showing appreciation and recognizing other’s strengths.
Travis Ranch started off the week with a “Kindness Pledge,” in which all students pledged one act of kindness. Posters full of pledges lined the walls, and students were able to read what others wrote throughout the week. The highlight of the week was “Guys in Ties/Girls in Pearls” day, which focused on politeness. During their lesson, students role-played scenarios dressed in their finest. Then, at lunch, they visited the “Compliment Table” led by fourth and fifth grade leadership students. Students received a compliment and a heart sticker to serve as a reminder to give compliments and spread kindness both in and out of school.
Each day, the leadership students at Travis Ranch promoted spirit wear, and provided lunchtime activities for all students to participate in. Everyone finished up the week with a dance party!
