We continue to focus on acts of kindness. Below is a list of ideas for you and your Tiger to consider…

  • Everyone is important. Learn the names of your office security guard, the person at the front desk and other people you see every day. Greet them by name. Also say “hello” to strangers and smile. These acts of kindness are so easy, and they almost always make people smile.
  • Write your friend a list of things you love about them.
  • Purchase extra dog or cat food and bring it to an animal shelter. (or donate to Mrs. Karpenski’s Dog Rescue)
  • Find opportunities to give compliments. It costs nothing, takes no time, and could make someone’s entire day. Don’t just think it. Say it.
  • Take flowers or treats to the nurses’ station at your nearest hospital.
  • Keep an extra umbrella at work, so you can lend it out when it rains.

I would like to leave with this quote on Kindness…

“Never be so busy as not to think of others.” – Mother Teresa

Those are the updates for the week ahead. Let’s make it a great week! Goooooo Tigers!

Kind Regards,

Mrs. Burke
