The Kindness Project @ ARTS is a movement of people, driven by students and teachers, that are committed to building a happier community by making positive changes in how we act as individuals. We want to see a fundamentally different way that our school community interacts. We want to support a community that cares less about what they can get for themselves and more about the happiness of others.
Our aim is to help everyone create a better world by spreading awareness and increasing engagement in kind actions. We will conduct Random Acts of Kindness in classrooms and throughout the building. Contact Ms. Kim Jones for more information or to get involved.
KINDNESS IS CONTAGIOUS
The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to “pay it forward.” This means one good deed in a crowded area can create a domino effect and improve the day of dozens of people!
KINDNESS IS TEACHABLE
“It’s kind of like weight training, we found that people can actually build up their compassion ‘muscle’ and respond to others’ suffering with care and a desire to help.” Dr. Ritchie Davidson , University of Wisconsin
Our wonderful friends at the Action for Happiness organization provided this Kindness Calendar for the month of November 2021.
