with the information surrounding this important initiative and a penguin will
be sent home in your child’s agenda. A Kindness Challenge has been set for
each student and their family to commit to an act of kindness. Please write your commitment on the penguin
sent home and return it to school. These commitments will be posted in our hallways
and be tallied and added to the provincial total. Thank you in advance for your involvement in this
very important initiative so close to the hearts of all of us here at FLB.
