The Great Kindness Challenge


Last week our school participated in "The Great Kindness Challenge" by performing  several acts of kindness to others in our school and community.  Mrs. Kelly, our principal, challenged our school to perform 10,000 acts of kindness.   Although we did not make our goal (we reached 9,156 total acts of kindness), it was a great learning experience filled with life lessons that hopefully our students will carry forward.


Also, because of our school's participation in "The Great Kindness Challenge", we were acknowledged as a Kindness Certified School and received a certificate and seal for making a positive difference in our school, community and in our world.


Way to go Baggs!

FOOD DRIVE


For the month of January, our school will be conducting a Food Drive. Students can bring non-perishable items throughout the month and drop them off at the library. All our food items will be donated to the new food pantry in town called, “We Can” that will open during the middle of the month. The class that brings the most items will be featured on our school website and receive a fun day during their library class. Baggs Elementary is focusing on kindness during January and we are excited to impact our community by thinking of others. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity!

walking club

Has your student talked about the "Walking Club"?

Mr. Cordell, our PE teacher, has started this activity for our students this year. 

Movement and exercise is so important to a child's health and mind that we are making it a priority out at recess that all students are moving in one way or another.  If a student isn't playing another game or doesn't want to play on the equipment, they can do Walking Club for recess instead of just standing or sitting around. 

Each student is having a laminated card made for them. They can take this out to recess and walk on a certain path that has been designated by Mr. Cordell on the playground.  Their cards will be scanned to keep track of the number of miles they walk.

The more miles they walk the more rewards they will get!

Check out this link that has a video of what this club is all about
