Throughout Catholic Schools Week St. Rita School participated in the Great Kindness Challenge, a national movement that empowered students to create a culture of kindness.
The students did teamwork and cooperative activities with their buddy classes, reading and building structures out of all sort of creative materials.
On the final afternoon, classes came to the gymnasium for a Kindness Pep Rally and partake in a cooperative activity called Powerball, using small balls to move a large ball across the other teams’ line.
Then to show school love, the school made a kindness tunnel leaving the gymnasium where each class got to go through and receive high fives from all the other classes.
In addition, families of St. Rita Schools also donated many cans of soup on soup-er bowl weekend.
There were also other “spirit” days that included wearing ties that reminded them they are “tied up in teamwork” every day.
