Description:

In honor of Virginia Kindness Week, the VDOE is encouraging schools to promote and celebrate kindness during the week of February 11-17, 2024. The purpose of Virginia Kindness Week is to recognize that simple day-to-day acts of kindness enable our schools, communities, and state to be a kinder, safer, healthier, and more inclusive place to live, work, learn, and play. Schools can access resources to plan their Virginia Kindness Week initiatives on the VDOE’s Virginia Kindness Week webpage to help promote and recognize kindness among students and staff.

Schools can promote and foster kindness all school year. However, each year here in Virginia we have celebrated kindness week during the second week in February.
