Great Kindness Challenge at GWMS via @kidsforpeace

Last week George Waters Middle School took part in the Great Kindness Challenge. All week long students were encouraged to do kind acts and record them in the GWMS Kindness Tracker. Also, students were encouraged to bring in tins of food for the Kindness Bin. All donations were given to Winnipeg Harvest this morning.

Over the week students logged 5808 kind acts surpassing our goal of 4000 easily!

Students also brought in 1120 cans of food!

The winner of the Pizza Party will be announced at our CARE Assembly on Tuesday morning.

I received an email this morning from the organizers of the Great Kindness CHallenge and once again GWMS is recognizes as a Kindness Certified School.

This is the letter that we received.
