Mrs. Horwath from Bay City MI is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindness Rocks and Pulls at Our Heart Strings!

Help me give my students art supplies, such as yarn, nails and hammers to make a string art project, so they would be able to make projects to spread kindness within our school as well as the community.

My Students

"Kindness is a passport that opens doors and fashion friends. It softens hearts and molds relationships that can last lifetimes." ~ Joseph B. Wirthlin ~

My students love to spread kindness to each other.

We would love to see more kindness spread within our whole school.

My classroom is currently made up of 15-18 students that would like to make a difference in their school and community. My students are very kind and giving. They all come from different and unique backgrounds but they know that actions speak loudly and they would like their voices heard! They would like to start a Kindness Club in which they would be able to share the kindness acts with others.

My Project

My project is to help continue to build our Kindness Club within our classroom. With the help of craft supplies and books on different ways of spreading kindness, as well as understanding different emotions, my students would like to form this club to show our school and community how much they are appreciated.

Within this club, the students will be performing random acts of kindness not only in our school but in the community as well.

We will be sharing stories with each other as well as making ornaments, a rock garden and special projects, such as string art, to share within our school and community, to show how special each and everyone of us are! Please help us "Spread Kindness like Confetti"!
