Great Kindness Challenge

  • Kindness Matters!

    Woodside Toucans will be joining thousands of other students from around the world in the Great Kindness Challenge.  The official dates of the challenge are January 28 - February 1, 2019.  Our Wonderful PTA is partnering with us in celebrating the "Wonders of Woodside" for the Great Kindness Challenge this year.

    Our Wonderful PTA is partnering with us to celebrate the Kindness Challenge this year.  The schedule this year is:

    Challenge Opening -- January 25th -- PTA sponsored movie night -- "Ferdinand"

    January 29 - Feb 1 -- Great Kindness Challenge and Food Drive

    Feb 4  - Feb 8 -- Great Kindness Challenge continues with Friendly Feathers and Playground Fun

    Feb 15 -- PTA sponsored movie night -- "Wonder" -- Challenge Closing


    During the Great Kindness Challenge, students are challenged to complete as many kind gestures as possible.  Students are given lists of kind deeds to complete during the challenge and they are encouraged to make up their own too.

    We are also showing how kindness matters by holding a food drive for a local food bank that takes care of our school community.  We ask that food items be from the following list since these are the items used in food bags for our school community.
