Making a Difference at PQ

Pequenakonck Elementary School kindergarten students are learning they can make a positive impact on the world every day, thanks to lessons they received during the annual Make a Difference Day in October.

As part of ONE CUB, the ongoing Kindergarten Kindness initiative, students took home red and orange paper hearts to list all of their kind deeds for family and friends. The hearts helped reinforce the school/home connection and involved families in the students’ acts of kindness. Parents contributed by writing down the acts of kindness their children performed at home, ranging from cleaning their rooms and helping their siblings to setting the table and hugging family members.

The hearts were then brought back to the classroom, where students cheered for their peers’ acts of kindness before the hearts were hung on the tree mural in the kindergarten hallway.
