The catch phrase is, "Bring the Change, Be the Change!" When I visit each classrooms, we talk about empathy and practicing random acts of kindness (the super secret code: R.A.K.). In K-1 classrooms, students generate an ABC list of kind things they can do around the school. In the upper grades, we watch a great video about kindness (see below), discuss how kindness comes around full circle, then make a list of ways students can practice RAK in our school community. All students are asked to be RAK spies and catch their peers in the act of being kind to others, then write down each RAK on a simple rectangle of paper. These slips can then be posted in the lobby's display case, or drawn from a basket to be read to the entire school over the intercom. The display case also features a collection of all of the change being brought in by grade level, so everyone can clearly see the changes happening over time. That way students can be encouraged to see that when they BRING the change in, they can actually BE the change in their community!
