Great Kindness Challenge 2021

GKC spirit days 2021

LES will be participating in the "The Great Kindness Challenge" this year, January 25-28th!

The GKC encourages and empowers students to do random acts of kindness throughout their day!  A virtual spirit week is planned that will include a fun theme for each day. Please share this flyer and info with your students.

On Monday, January 25th, we will begin our virtual “Great Kindness Challenge.” Please join us through encouraging your students to participate and be everything they are meant to be as we take on this honorable challenge! We will be using the "Family" Checklist this year, for acts of kindness to do while at home, rather than the "school" checklist that has been done in the past.

We would love to hear how students are choosing to participate and/or an act of kindness they completed this week. They can use this flipgrid link to share. I will be using these videos to put together an LES "Great Kindness Challenge Video and I would love for teachers/staff to record something as well!

 Elementary School Counseling Services

The school counseling program at Leonardtown Elementary School is designed to assist students in decision-making and to help each child appreciate their self-worth. The counselor facilitates daily and weekly lessons, which may include such topics as mindfulness, collaboration, conflict resolution, empathy, coping with change, goal setting, career exploration, perseverance, and middle school transition. Teachers, families, or students may make referrals for specific problems to the school counselor.  The school counselor meets with new students entering our school to welcome and orient them to the school’s expectations and culture and helps coordinate our fifth graders’ transition to middle school through a family information night, registration information, and student visits to the middle school.
