November 15, 2019—The award-winning Say and Do Nice Things (SDNT) campaign is back starting November 18, 2019.
New for this year is MISSION:KINDNESS, bringing a positive twist to SDNT and promoting kindness by saying and doing nice things in schools and communities. Schools are encouraged to challenge one another and share through social media.
MISSION:KINDNESS coincides with the provincial Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week which is November 18 – 22, 2019. It is a time for students, employees, parents/guardians and community to learn more about bullying and its effect people. Even so, saying and doing nice things goes beyond that week—they can happen all year long.
Schools received promotional materials consisting of posters, postcards, PA announcements, and simple, fun daily challenges.
Daily messaging and challenges are geared around the following kindness traits:
- Kindness & Empathy Monday
- Listening Tuesday
- Helpful Wednesday
- Thankful Thursday
- Social Friday
Schools are encouraged to challenge other schools to complete missions and share through social media using the hashtags #MISSION:KINDNESS @SayDoNiceThings #SayDoNiceThings #CaringCounts #HPEDSB_BeWell
