Dear K parents:  Get ready for some FUN and to share KINDNESS

 Kindergarten’s Cereal Box Domino Challenge



A box of cereal

Description automatically generated with medium confidence


Acts of kindness have a domino effect!


You may have seen it on You Tube or TikTok… Boxes of cereal that are collected for donation to a local food bank make a great domino maze! We know we can impact our community in a more significant way when we work together. Help show our kindergarten classes how teamwork makes the dream work and please help us pay it forward with kindness! Donate a box or more of cereal (regular sized boxes work the best) and we will celebrate by showing the students the “domino effect” of kindness at Saint Leo’s.  


Please bring your cereal any time before Tuesday, March 26th.

Kindergarten thanks you for your support!


When we work together, anything is possible!
