Lido Takes On Kindness Challenge

Lido School participated in the Great Kindness Challenge from Jan. 22-26, when students and staff members proudly became part of a nationwide culture of kindness that strives to prevent bullying and reinforce good character. The Student Government spearheaded Lido’s efforts to promote this initiative. 

The week kicked off with assemblies held in the gymnasium, where students in all grades embraced the message that “kindness matters” with enthusiasm. They viewed a video, heard messages shared by Student Government members and danced with excitement. 

Each day featured a theme, a school challenge and an inspirational quote. Students dressed in clothing that represented sports teams for “Score with Kindness,” tie-dye for “Tied to Kindness” and neon for “Shine Bright By Being Kind.” 

Throughout the week, students learned how small actions can make a big impact as they said good morning to others, helped their teachers, sat with new peers at lunch, demonstrated random acts of kindness and said “please” and “thank you” to support staff members. Many also contributed to a winter coat drive that brought support to those in need.
