Throughout the month of March, the Rushmore Avenue Student Council hosted a Gratitude Campaign. Student Council Representatives worked diligently, and innovatively, to provide a virtual assembly to explain the campaign to their peers. The campaign encouraged students and staff to look for the good by focusing on gratitude and kindness. The campaign consisted of three main components; Gratitude Spots, a Gratitude “Wall” and You Matter letters.
As part of Gratitude Spots, students were encouraged to share something they are thankful for when they step on any of the “spots” placed throughout the hallway; as part of the Gratitude Wall, students each morning were tasked with writing down their appreciation on sticky notes that they then turned into a flipgrid video; and as part of You Matter letters students were encouraged to write a friendly letter to someone that has made a difference in their life. The students were given time to complete their letters and encouraged to read them aloud to the person they wrote it to.
