Challenge to Make Kindness Commonplace

A project of Stand with Children, the Middle School Kindness Challenge is an easy and free way to make kindness commonplace and improve school climate and student learning in the critical middle school years. Open to schools with any combination of grades 4–8, the Challenge offers 33 best-in-class kindness activities to teach and foster kindness over a four-week period of the school’s choosing. During the Challenge, participating school staff teach four out of the 33 activities of their choosing. The activities, ranging from two-minute to whole-class period lessons, fall into four categories: Developing Positive Mindsets, Strengthening Peer Relationships, Fostering Empathy, and Promoting Cyber-Kindness. Through the activities, students learn practical skills to help them engage responsibly with social media and online applications, including video games. New this year are activities covering a range of topics that are specifically designed and age-appropriate for K–3 children.
