Cool to Care

Jeffrey Celebrates ‘Cool to Care’ Week   

January 13, 2020- This week Jeffrey Elementary School kicked off “cool to Care” week, a week of activities designed to inspire kindness and caring within the Jeffrey School community. 

Students started off the week with an assembly, led by the 3rd grade leadership teams. Students helped explain the Jeffrey school rules to their classmates and 3rd grade student Sloane Siegel read the book “Say Something” in the assembly. Sloane said she wanted to be a part of organizing this week because she doesn’t want all students at Jeffrey to ever feel left out. 

“I started to notice that kids are left out and I actually was one of the kids that used to be left out and no one would invite me to play so I thought we have got to change something about our school, I should really speak up and say something to Mrs. Frost,” she said. “So I went to her and asked to start something about this.” 
Throughout the rest of the week, there will be plenty of activities for student to focus on kindness and caring. Students can write a “Cool to Care” letter of appreciation for a friend or teacher, write down random acts of kindness on slips of paper to add to the school-wide chain of kindness, and listen to visits from the “Buddy Bench Support Team” in classrooms this week.    

Mrs. Frost said all students have to work together to make Jeffrey the kind of school where it is cool to do the right thing. Mrs. Frost closed the assembly by asking students to always follow one important rule at Jeffrey: “In a world where you can be anything, be kind”.
