On Monday, November 7th Eagle Valley Middle School held an assembly with Think Kindness Founder Brian Williams. It was amazing! Our Leadership Team did a great job getting ready and helping with this assembly! See the article below for coverage from our local newspaper, The Nevada Appeal!

It was an amazing assembly! Students saw the impact that the shoe drive they participated in last year had. They had donated over 2,000 pairs of shoes to orphanages in Africa to allow children there to go to school! So powerful!
This year, Brian challenged our students to perform 5,000 acts of kindness in 15 days! We can do it! The kids have all stepped up in an inspiring fashion! Part of their acts of kindness is to participate in a Winter Needs Drive to help Families in Northern Nevada.
For our Winter Needs Drive our school is collecting coats, hats, scarves, warm clothing, blankets, sleeping bags, etc. You name it and we will probably take it!! These donations will be distributed to Faith Hope Love of N. NV which is an organization of families helping families and homeless in need.
Our Leadership team has been in the last two mornings, sorting and counting! We already have BOXES and BOXES!!! The students and staff here are so generous! They give more than many schools twice their size! The Leadership team, which meets before and after school, give countless hours in service to our community. I am so proud of this group!!! They are all LEADERS!
Wishing you all a day filled with kindness!
