Every year, at Canyon Crest, we celebrate KINDNESS WEEK.  Kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.  By talking about and practicing kindness, we hope to make the world a better place for everyone in it.  We know that our kids see everything that we do, and so we all try to be the best examples that we can be.  Kindness is for everyone!  We all have struggles and when our children realize that it will help them to empathize and be kind to others.  There are many places to find wonderful information about being kind and ways to talk about it with children.  Some of our favorite resources for kindness are:
