Last year, my good friend and fellow principal Jennifer Vest ( @PrincipalVest ) told me about a kindness challenge she created for her staff to encourage them to share kindness with students, family, and each other. As a member of the #momsasprincipals PLN, I often listen and read through the amazing ideas shared by this group of leaders in our Voxer group. This week as I was scrolling through, the topic of conversation was motivating staff through the month of February – which is widely known as a morale slump. One colleague posted a calendar of fun treats and celebrations to help staff have a Fabulous February.
I wholeheartedly believe there is truth in the saying “we rise by lifting others”. Therefore, I set out to combine these two ideas – motivating staff in this tough month by having them focus on providing acts of kindness for others. We are going to use Kindness to make it a Fabulous February! Jump on board and join in the #KindFabFeb Challenge!
