NOVEMBER IS KINDNESS CHALLENGE MONTH AT AMS!
Throughout the month of November, AMS is taking the National Middle School Kindness Challenge.
This program offers a month-long spotlight on the importance of kindness in our schools and community and builds on a growing body of research that shows that simply talking about kindness and actively spreading positive interactions with others has a dramatic, positive impact on school climate.
To celebrate this challenge students will be participating in four Morning Meeting activities focused on concrete ways they can help make AMS and our greater community a kinder place through simple actions.
Our theme for the month ahead is “Put the ‘I’ in Kindness.” Watch for posts on Twitter and Instagram to see students putting the #KindnessChallenge into action.
