The Kindness Challenge 2019
As the first senior class to experience the new building, GMHS class of 2019 Senior Committee wanted to inspire all GMHS students to start the new school year with a positive mindset. They utilized the transition into the new building as an opportunity to affect the culture of the whole school in a positive way. Their mission was to promote kindness throughout the school and inspire others to do the same. They kicked off the new year with The Kindness Challenge. This challenge will run throughout the 2018-2019 school year with a new theme every month.
For the first kindness challenge, The Senior Hug Challenge, the 2019 Senior Committee members handed out Hugs to random senior classes. Each Hug had a kindness challenge taped to the outside of the barrel. Along with the Hugs, students received a letter explaining how the challenge worked. As students completed their acts of kindness, they were asked to take a photo and post it on Twitter using #CHOOSEKINDNESS2019. The receivier of the act of kindness was challenged to do the same thing for someone else so the kindness continued to spread throughout the school community.
