It was so great to see all the wonderful acts of kindness this month done by all of our Patwin Hawks! Here’s a little more about why it’s so important to teach kindness to our students.

 

6 Reasons Why Teaching Kindness is Important

 

1. Happy Children

There is a natural good feeling that results when we do an act of kindness. These good feelings are proven to be contagious, encouraging even more kind behavior (also known as altruism).

 

2. Greater Sense of Belonging and Improved Self-Esteem

Studies show that people experience a "helper's high" when they do a kind act. This rush of endorphins creates a lasting sense of pride, well-being, and an enriched sense of belonging.

 

3. Increased Peer Acceptance

Research on prosocial behavior among adolescents determined that being kind increases our ability to form meaningful connections with other people and greater peer acceptance was achieved through acts of kindness. 

 

4. Improved Health and Less Stress

There are a number of physical and mental health benefits that can be achieved by being kind. Altruistic actions trigger a release of the hormone oxytocin, which can significantly increase a person's level of happiness and reduce stress levels.

 

5. Better Concentration and Improved Results

Kindness is a key ingredient that enhances positivity and helps children feel good about themselves as it increases serotonin levels. This important chemical affects learning, memory, mood, sleep, health, and digestion. Children with a positive outlook have greater attention spans, more willingness to learn, and better creative thinking to improve results at school.

 

6. Less Bullying

When students are taught how to change their thoughts and actions by learning about kindness and compassion, it fosters the positive behavior that's expected and naturally rewarded with friendship. Promoting kindness and empathy is key in reducing bullying to create warm and inclusive school environments.

School Board “We All Belong” Resolution - Implementation Begins

 

This month, the Davis School Board approved a resolution providing a clear and transparent statement that DJUSD shall be a place where all students, employees and families feel welcome and safe regardless of their immigration status, race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or gender expression. Specifically, the resolution addresses procedures for responding to federal immigration enforcement action as well as policy changes around data collection on student enrollment. For more information visit www.djusd.net/Belong or click on We All Belong Resolution. The resolution marked an important, first step to begin the process of examining current policies and procedures, educating school employees, and working closely with community partners to ensure that all students and families, including those that are undocumented or marginalized, are able to receive education in a safe and supportive environment.
