The Great Kindness Challenge
January 22-26, 2018
Our system will once again participate in The Great Kindness Challenge. The Great Kindness Challenge is one school week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible. This year the challenge will occur during the week of January 22-26, 2018.
The Great Kindness Challenge has the power to increase empathy, tolerance, and compassion for all students from kindergarten through high school.
Jill McManigal, Executive Director of Kids for Peace, stated, “When students perform kind act after kind act after kind act, kindness becomes a habit. When kindness becomes a habit, peace becomes possible.”
Imagine students complimenting each other, reaching out to a lonely child, picking up trash, surprising friends with happy notes in their backpacks, thanking their teachers creatively, and eating lunch with a new group of friends. These kind acts and more will happen in schools throughout our system and across all 50 states during the 2018 Great Kindness Challenge!
Along with maintaining our instructional program, student safety remains as our greatest concern. In times of threatening conditions due to severe weather, we have developed a plan throughout the Tuscaloosa County School System to allow for a delayed opening of school. If such action is required, the time for the opening of school will be announced through all normal media outlets, system website, and parent notification system. Bus transportation schedules will be adjusted to allow for the delay and breakfast will be offered upon students' arrival to school. Schools will follow their regular afternoon dismissal plan. If absences are related due to severe weather, please contact your local school administrators.
