Starting this week, Saint Matthias celebrates The Great Kindness Challenge by participating in national events, and creating joyful kindness of their own!  Today, the first day of the challenge, finished with a team of 4th graders leading the school in the song “Reach Out With Your Kindhearted Hand.”  Students have been preparing the song and learning about why kindness matters.

Students prepared for the challenge by reading stories and reflecting on what it means to be kind, and why we act kind towards each other.

The challenge internationally lasts a week, but Saint Matthias students will carry this activity and focus up until Valentine’s Day.  They will finish with a service activity to help families in need celebrate birthdays by creating “birthday bags” for our food pantry.  These bags contain items to make a birthday cake.

This year, two million students will participate in The Great Kindness Challenge worldwide.
