Q300 Kindness Challenge 2022 (2/13/2022 – 2/27/2022)

In honor of Random Acts of Kindness Day on February 17th the Q300 PTA would like to invite the Q300 community to once again participate in a Kindness Challenge. The Kindness Challenge will run from February 13th – 27th, 2022.


Below are a few ways to participate:

Kindness Challenge Group Activity
In an effort to build community, we invite each grade to choose their own activity, or series of activities, that students can work on together outside of school, either in small groups, large groups, or even individually, to show kindness. The possibilities are endless!

We look forward to recognizing all of the great work and showcasing photos of the projects on the Q300 PTA Facebook page after the February 27th, 2022.

As with all initiatives, we ask that the projects be inclusive of all students, and adhere to the latest CDC’s COVID safety protocol for gatherings. Please reach out to your Class Parent if you have ideas for a charitable cause, community initiative or volunteer project your grade can participate in.

Random Acts of Kindness Ideas List
Check out the attached list of ideas to inspire your acts of kindness. Remember, there are so many ways we can be kind, to our friends, family, teachers, neighbors, community, animals, our planet, and even ourselves! Feel free to be creative and come up with your own unique ideas for showing kindness.
