Acts of Kindness

At JFTN, this month’s unit of study is Acts of Kindness. Our teachers and staff have created lessons and activities to help students develop a greater appreciation of Kindness.

We’ll explore the importance of friendship, helping others and sharing. Some classrooms will sing songs and give gifts to friends in neighboring classrooms. We’ll read books about spending time with family and friends during the holidays, and we'll decorate donation boxes for our Food for Friends food drive. 

JFTN parents can help reinforce lessons from our Acts of Kindness unit by donating non-perishable food items to our Food for Friends event. Filling your child's donation box is a great way to encourage and affirm your child's efforts, while also helping families in need.

If you're a JFTN parent, you can also read our Food for Friends Social Story with your child. We've made this story to help your child understand why we're doing a food drive and to develop their understanding of concepts like kindness, friendship and generosity.
