Kindness Challenge

     Thanks to a 6th grade VCS family, we were picked by Rubio’s Coastal Grill to have a Kindness Challenge at our school! Every 5th through 8th grade student is eligible to receive a certificate for ONE FREE MEAL! Here’s how to receive your certificate:

  • Brainstorm ways you can be kind to others here at school.

Your paragraph must include:

  • A topic sentence with the main idea of the paragraph.
  • Specific examples (give details!) of how you were kind at school.
  • A conclusion sentence with an inspirational message to others about being kind!

You can either write out your paragraph neatly (with a full heading at the top!) and give it to Mrs. Hull, or type it and send to Mrs. Hull at You can also add it as a comment on this blog post! Entries must be sent or turned in by Monday, June 10th!

Kindness is a way to show how much you appreciate and care for someone. It shows that you want someone to feel loved and cared for. Kindness is a very powerful and amazing word that has a meaningful meaning. There are a bunch of ways you can show kindness to the people around you. At school, you can sit with someone who is alone and invite them to sit with your friends and play a game with you! You can also help a classmate who is struggling in class with an assignment. You can help them and give them clues to where they can find the answer! In survivor chapel this morning, I showed an act of kindness to a friend who was sad when they didn't get the answer right. I told them that at least they tried their best and God knows they tried and gave it their all, and I also said to just ask God to give them the answer for the next question and they got it right! It turns out, all they needed was a little bit of hope and a small, kind pep talk! Kindness makes everyone feel better and brightens their day! Remember to always be kind to people, even when it's hard!

Everyone might not me nice to others or struggles to but there are ways that you can. For example, some of the days at school i will by my friend lunch or snack. Or i will give my friend help with homework or schoolwork. There are many ways to help people but you have to find which one is right for you.

The one that is right for me is that i will buy my friends food from the student store or buy them food for lunch. I do it often for the friends i trust to be kind back to me. In my opinion this is a nice thing to do and I can tell that they like my kindness toward them.

This is what I can do to be kind to not just my friends but everyone.

Kindness is a very powerful, yet inspirational word. There are many ways you can be kind, and you can bring others up instead of pushing them down. It can be so easy and simple to be kind. If somebody drops their books, go help them pick them up. Even if they are mean or unkind to you, fix that. Help them make the right choices by showing them how he or she should treat others. If someone is unkind to you, help change that by being kind to them as much as possible. You should be kind to everyone, not just the people that are kind to you. In the Bible, Galatians 5:14 says, “For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Follow God’s word, and treat others like you want to be treated. Another verse that relates to kindness is John 15:12 which says, “This is my commandment, love one another as I have loved you.” I think this is another great verse because God’s love is huge for us, and it says to love one another with that much love. For example, if someone trips and hurts themselves, help them! Or, if someone drops something help them pick it up! It’s as easy as that, just take a minute out of your day to help someone else, because the life doesn’t revolve around you!

my brainstorm is on this link but the same will be below

Well it’s hard to be nice because, well… not that many people here are kind to me and i have to be the same to them back! I mean, well I can be kind to those who are kind to me, but it’s kinda rare, I want to be friends with everyone here but it’s hard I don’t think it’s to a point where anyone hates me,well no one does, but… I will try to be kind, like a few times I offered some of my snacks to some people cause just forget to pack them alot, so I have given them stuff before, also if someone falls I could offer to help them up, or if im good at something I could offer to help them, that’s my acts of kindness and also I could do many other things that I can’t think about, so yeah, wait… there is more! And also lets say if someone is giving u the food, then you can probably bring it back to the person double, same with money! Cause here is the thing, just like that “High Five sticky note” whatever goes around comes around, it's in the Bible in Mark 12:31, and Luke 10:27 its the golden rule, Do to others as you want them to do to you, now thats an act of kindness.

There are many ways to be kind. It leads to many things, such as friends👬, love💞❤, and affection😻. Sometimes we are mad😤, angry😡, or disappointed😧. No matter who is being rude, the meanest🙎or the kindest👧, if you show kindness to all, it makes you, others, and God feel good and happy😁! By the way, there are many ways to be kind at school! For example, sharing snacks (sharing is caring) and toys. Others are going to be kind to you and share with you, if you do those things to them! Another example is to include everyone to hang out with you! This can be hard to do with people that you don’t get along with them, but we need to get over it and learn to get along with them. We can also give good compliments, like great job, and you gave it your best. Then it would make all of our lives easier. Like today I let someone have my paper and let someone go before me in line. This made me feel good so why can’t you try it. This is why we need to switch to kindness.
