The Kindness Squad
The Kindness Squad at Central Lyon consists of all fourth-grade students and their teachers Mrs. Groen and Mrs. Van. Each week Thursday, they find a way to encourage and spread kindness to students, teachers, and the community. The Kindness Squad idea came from a Florida Teacher named Joanne Miller. She has an Instagram account called “Head Over Heels for Teaching” where she shares what her Kindness Squad does. Mrs. Groen and Mrs. Van hope that their 60 students encouraging others will lead others to do the same. “Kindness breeds more kindness.”
Each week they focus on a different group that they can share kindness with. The fourth grade Kindness Squad is back and helping other classes. Who says math isn't fun? Kindness Squad taught place value war and addition war to our Central Lyon second graders.
