Kids Caught in Kindness

Kids Caught in Kindness is a new initiative started by a Fort Thomas Coffee employee who witnessed three kids go out of their way to support another student who was experiencing a hard moment.  At FTC we believe in the importance of recognizing those moments and the kids involved in order to support and encourage more opportunities of kindness.  

There is a lot of attention drawn to the negative behavior and choices of the youth.  Gandhi said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”  As community members we can be the change by looking for kindness and calling it out.  We can also encourage our younger members to “be the change” when we see them acting in kindness and positively reinforcing it.  

 

FTC has created a “button” which individuals can use to donate into the fund.  Gift cards will be purchased (through the fund) and given to the schools to hand out to nominated kids (as supplies allow). 

 

Kids can be nominated by anyone in the community, either a teacher, a business owner, another parent, or a community member.  The school that the child attends would deliver the gift card to the child as well as communicate to their parents or guardians that this child was “Caught In Kindness.”

Yearbook Photos

We switched companies for school pictures this year which means we also changed our yearbook company. StrawBridge has an awesome yearbook website with an easy to access upload page for candid photos!

 

For the yearbook to be a great success with lots of different activities and students in it, we NEED your photos!  To get to those to us, follow these four steps:

1) Go to this site: https://plicbooks.com/go/225UPV  (this is specific to our yearbook)

2) Choose one of the preset categories in the drop down menu (ex: sports).

3) Choose "upload your files'' (for PC, phone, tablet storage) or Google Drive or Instagram.

3) Choose your photos and click "start upload."

4) Once you get the message that your uploads are complete.  You are set!

 

This is the BEST and EASIEST way for you to share and us to receive pictures for the yearbook. Please consider saving or bookmarking the link for easy adding of photos after an event

 

Please take a few minutes to go in and add events for this year so far:

first day of school, soccer, cross country, field trips, class days, assemblies, volleyball, etc... We need those pictures!
