Centennial Leadership is launching our latest Be Kind day. We pick a day and encourage students to wear their Be Kind shirts. We bring in a different shirt design each time and bring in limited numbers so that they sell out and leaves our school wanting more. This time we are going with the Mountain Dew theme. Students who wear their Be Kind shirts on that day are given two cans of Mountain Dew. One for you and one for someone who is important to you. Each can has a note of thanks on it. Students can wear any of the Be Kind shirts from the past to qualify. Thanks to Weyburn School who gave us the original Be Kind shirt idea.
Recently at Centennial we held a Be Kind day. Students are asked to wear a Be Kind shirt that we sell at the school store for a reduced price of $8. The original shirts said “Be Kind” on the front and “…Just Because” on the back. We got the original idea for the shirts and Be Kind days from Weyburn Comprehensive School. We just added a new shirt which looks similar to the retro Coke logo.
If a student wore their Be Kind shirt they received a yellow rose which symbolizes friendship. They were then encouraged to pass the rose on to someone they appreciate. A Leadership student approached Michelle’s Floral Boutique near Centennial and they generously donated 4 dozen yellow roses.
It was fun to watch the yellow roses get passed on throughout the day. There were lots of postings on Instagram and Snapchat featuring the roses.
Sometimes a small gesture can make a difference.
