VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Be a part of the Chain Reaction Ceremony!

Posted on Apr. 17 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
We are seeking volunteers to help carry the McCulloch Kindness Chain in this year's Chain Reaction Ceremony at the annual MCS Kindness Rally!

McCulloch students carry in their Kindness Chain during the 2013 MCS Kindness Rally.

Each paper link in the Kindness Chain represents an act of kindness done at our school. Representatives from each MCS school building parade in carrying their school's chain during the Chain Reaction Ceremony. We need YOU to help us carry our chain in with pride!

The third annual MCS Kindness Rally is set for May 1. The Chain Reaction ceremony starts at 5:30 p.m., and you'd need to be there a few minutes early so we can get our chain ready to go.

>> If you are interested in participating, see Mrs. Holt for more information, or sign up in the cafeteria.

VIDEOS: You get what you give, so give kindness!

Posted on Apr. 17 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
This week, as part of week four of the McCulloch Junior High Random Acts of Kindness Campaign, teachers shared this video with their students, and discussed how kindness can change the world, one act and one person at a time. 

We hope you'll view it too, and join that conversation. Take a look:

The kindness of a a fallen soldier's son ripples across the nation:

Another chain reaction, this time in the fast food drive-through lane!

Simple acts create a chain reaction of kindness!

Your "homework"
Do you have a family movie night? We've been talking this week about the concept of paying it forward. Maybe you and your family would like to consider watching the movie "Pay It Forward" and then continue the conversation!



Kindness Campaign, Week 6: Team Up to Pay It Forward

Posted on Apr. 13 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
It's here: the sixth week of our Random Acts of Kindness Campaign! Let's talk about how we can keep the chain reaction of kindness going and spread it out into our community!
YOU can start a chain reaction of kindness. All it takes is one simple act!

Theme of the week: The theme for the week of April 13 - 17 is "Team Up to Pay It Forward". We'll focus on the meaning of that popular concept: Doing something good for someone in response to a good deed done on your behalf or a gift you received. Instead of repaying the person who did the good deed or gave the gift, though, you do something nice for someone else. And the chain reaction of kindness continues! The challenge is to take advantage of any opportunity you have this week to pay it forward!

Dress-up Day: At the end of the week, on Friday, April 17, McCulloch students and staff are encouraged to wear their favorite athletic apparel (team jersey, T-shirt, etc.) We're all on TEAM KINDNESS and we're paying it forward!

MCS Kindness Rally: The third annual MCS Kindness Rally is set for 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, May 1. Going? Join our Facebook event page!
