John Dewey H.S. Campaign for” Kindness Week” and “No one Eats Alone Day”

John Dewey students and staff are always thinking out of the box and always trying to improve their community and their school. So instead of having just one day to let students know that we are a community, and here for each other we made that one day go for five days! No one eats alone is a city wide event. Students are encouraged to come out of their comfort zone and sit with someone at lunch who is alone. Here at our school we encouraged our students all week long. Monday we asked everyone to wave to someone they did not know. Tuesday we asked them to say hello. Wednesday was smile at ten people. Thursday ask someone you don’t know how their day is going? Friday was no one eats alone. Ms. Horn along with two of her classes made posters and sat in the lunchroom for all the lunch periods and made sure no one ate alone. Here are some pictures from the week.

J.D.H.S. was proud to be a part of giving back during the holiday season. Our students, staff and parents collected new toys for a local shelter. Students and staff wrapped gifts to be given to children of all ages. Our staff went and distributed these gifts at the shelter. They brought Santa and clowns and treats for all the children. Our students and staff also participated in the Make a Wish Foundations annual holiday letter writing campaign. We submitted 475 letters that means a donation to the Make a Wish Foundation for $475.00!!!!!
