Kindness Committee

The Kindness Committee is dedicated to promoting acts of kindness and teaching empathy to the students at Roosevelt Elementary. We initiate approximately four events each school year which may be charity (external) focused, or these events may be based among the Roosevelt students and staff. We believe that the early practice of kindness and empathy makes an indelible lasting impact on the life of each child and our Roosevelt community.

Kindness Committee’s First initiative of the year: Donations for Florida Schools & Families 
Due by Friday, November 17th

The Kindness Committee is coordinating with the Marion County School District in Florida to provide support after Hurricane Irma devastated their community. 

Please join us in providing low income students with desperately needed necessities including clean socks, underwear, deodorant, school supplies and backpacks.

Kindness Committee’s Second initiative of the year: Uncle Pete’s Sack Lunches on 2/6/18

The Roosevelt community was very generous again this year by donating 450 sack lunches–the exact same number as last year!

Additionally, monetary donations of $240.60 were collected and given to UPM towards making sack lunches in the future.

We’d like to relay a special thank you to the Student Council for decorating the Roosevelt halls with posters about UPM and to the Kindness Committee who worked with UPM to make this event happen.

It takes a community of generous and kind-hearted people to make a difference, and today we nourished 450 stomachs. What a tremendous act of kindness by all!

Kindness Committee’s Third initiative of the year: Choose Kindness through April 1st, 2018!

#choosekind Now Happening in Classrooms!

Inspired by the movie Wonder, the Kindness Committee has brought #choosekind to our classrooms!

Each classroom has the opportunity to become “Certified Kind” by filling a classroom jar with a marble each time someone witnesses an act of kindness in their class. Once filled, photos of the jars will  be submitted to to be certified as an “Official Kind” classroom AND to be eligible for prizes.

This will be ongoing through April 1st!
Be sure to ask your child about their classroom’s kind acts!
