Lee Elementary School celebrated “Kindness Day” on Wednesday, May 9, 2018. The entire school was dressed and decorated in yellow to honor the theme “Turn Someone’s Grey Day Yellow”. Students read books on kindness, discussed ways to be kind to others, and over 600 acts of kindness were posted in front of our school. Throughout the day, families stopped to read the heartfelt messages of how to be kind.
Lee Elementary joins 22 states and four countries on the quest to spread kindness across the world. This day originally began as a celebration of life for a kindergarten teacher and mentor who lost her battle to cancer. Because yellow was her favorite color and she was viewed to her friends as ‘the kindest person in the world’, Lee joins in to spread kindness across the world in her honor.
