Q300 Kindness Challenge 2024 (2/17/2024 – 3/16/2024)

In honor of Random Acts of Kindness Day on February 17th the Q300 PTA would like to invite the Q300 community to participate in the 4th Annual Q300 Kindness Challenge.

The Kindness Challenge will run from Saturday, February 17, 2024 to Saturday, March 16, 2024.

We ask the community to put Q300’s core values of inclusion and responsibility at the forefront of their efforts to strengthen our community in service. 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 March 16, 2024.

As with all initiatives, we ask that the projects be inclusive of all students. Please reach out to your Class Parent if you have ideas for a charity, cause or volunteer initiative your grade can participate in.
