MVES Compassion Week is this week, November 12th-16th 😃

 

This week we will have special activities to celebrate our ‘Be Nice’ school campaign while recognizing and promoting each student’s ability rather than disability. It will focus on using compassion and kindness within our school and around our community. Thank you for your support in continuing to promote our positive school and community environment!

📌 Monday, November 12th- Showing of ‘Willamena Picklepants and a Case of the No-Good Really Mean Words’ by East Cobb author and mother, Lauri Garretson

📌 Tuesday, November 13th- ‘Dress to be Different’ by wearing a hat, silly socks, backwards clothing, crazy hair or Pj’s.

📌 Friday, November 16th- Wear your class ‘Be Nice’ shirts to promote kindness and similarities rather than differences.

We will also have in school challenges to demonstrate acts of kindness in our everyday school life. One being a school wide Compassion Chain linked together with acts of kindness displayed by each student as well as teacher.

The other a ‘Choose Nice Always’ challenge in which students will be able to take an act of kindness and spread it through demonstration. Use this coming week to have open dialogue with your children on the importance of spreading love, kindness and compassion wherever they go.

Thank you for supporting Compassion Week!

We are looking for volunteers that can help during the Thanksgiving lunches.  Volunteers will either check-in parents coming to eat Thanksgiving lunch with their students or will serve sack lunches to the children in the other grades not participating in the Thanksgiving Lunch that day.  This is a huge help to the cafeteria staff who will be extra busy with all of the visitors eating lunch in the cafeteria!  Any number of shifts you can sign up for is greatly appreciated!

 

CLICK HERE to SignUp

 

Volunteers will need to meet in the cafeteria, and are required to wear closed-toe, non-slip shoes.  We will be serving lunch in the second serving line that is normally not in use.  Once you arrive, please look for other volunteers or the cafeteria manager, Stacey Deremer, for direction.  Please try to arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your shift for brief training.

Do you want to help teachers but don't have a lot of time? 
Want to volunteer but need flexibility?

We need one volunteer per day to help the teachers make copies. Teachers leave their requests in the Learning Commons and we can come in ANY TIME during school hours to make copies for them. It usually takes about an hour (sometimes less). Cindy Bozza will reach out to you if you haven't done this before to go over training and logistics. You can help as many or as little days in a month as you can. Click HERE to SignUp for October.  Questions? Please email Cindy at copying@mountainviewpta.org
