WHITE MARSH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL’S RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS CHALLENGE
WMES will be doing our Random Acts of Kindness challenge again this school year starting December 18, 2017.
Have someone take a picture of you performing a Random Act of Kindness for someone outside of your household (shoveling snow, raking leaves, walking a dog, baking cookies, etc.). Have your parent/guardian email your photo to Ms. Washington at email@example.com or tweet your photo to @WMESCares. Student’s photos will also be shared with their teacher to do a Random Acts of Kindness Show and Tell for their class. You can submit multiple photos throughout the school year.
