The Kindness Rocks Project

One message at just the right moment can change someone's entire day, outlook, and life!

In September, Nichols students created Kindness Rocks in their Art classes. These inspirational rocks will be "planted in two rock gardens; one located in front of the school's main entrance and the other, in the back of the school as part of the recently installed memorial garden.

Crayola ColorCycle - Turn Markers Into Energy

Nichols has begun participating in Crayola's ColorCycle program devised to turn used markers into energy. Students and staff will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded. The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!

Please help support our efforts by reminding students to deposit any used markers in the classroom or from home – even non-Crayola brands – into drop-off boxes located in the faculty lounge, main office and each of the kindergarten rooms.

Contact Julie Cola for more information.

Start With Hello

Our week of "Start With Hello" has taken off. All of our Nichols students have shown kindness by greeting one another on, "Hey Day," as well as getting to know all of our new students on, "Ice Breaker Day." At recess students are playing with new friends and giving compliments throughout the day. Let's keep this going Nichols!
