Alexandra Kindness Challenge
Posted on 02/11/2021
Every February, the students and staff at Alexandra Community School take part in a two-week kindness challenge.  The timing is purposeful as during February at Alexandra, there is a school wide focus on the Grandfather Teaching of "zaagi'idiwin" or "love".

This year, the challenges focused on both the school and local communities.  Feather Evans, a Grade 2 student, is neighbour to Charlie Fischer, a 106-year-old World War Two veteran.  Feather helped deliver over 250 valentines to Charlie as one of the first school wide challenges.  Showering the Alexandra custodial staff with notes of love, banners and cards for Chapman House, and "thank-you" cards for the health care workers at the COVID-19 assessment site, are just some of the kindness challenges that the Alexandra Eagles completed.

At Alexandra, they truly believe, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted!”
