5th GRADE KINDNESS RETREAT – FEBRUARY 26
Wyoming Middle School is excited about the upcoming 5th grade Kindness Retreat that will be facilitated by Youth Frontiers, Inc.!
On the kindness retreat, the Youth Frontiers Staff will focus on how kindness makes a positive difference in our school and how unkind, bullying behaviors hurt others. This high-energy, interactive retreat is scheduled for Tuesday February 26, 2019 for the 5th grade class and will be held in the middle school gymnasium.
An important part of the Kindness Retreat is the small group discussions that occur throughout the day. We are pleased that these small groups will be led by 8th graders from Wyoming Middle School. We believe it will be a wonderful thing to have our 8th graders mentoring younger students in this way. The 8th graders will be building leadership skills and our 5th graders will feel valued!!
Please visit youthfrontiers.org/kindness-retreat for more information on YF, to access great parent resources, and to watch a video about the Kindness Retreat. If you have questions about the retreat, please contact the guidance office at 206-7225.
