I just mailed an Apple iPad Mini to a Boosterthon class in Kentucky.
It wasn’t a grand prize for the student with the most pledges. It wasn’t a raffle or a random drawing for a lucky winner.
It was for showing kindness.
Ms. Sproles’s 2/3rd grade class at Veterans Park Elem participated in a Boosterthon challenge called a “Cabin Caper,” which is an encouraging trick where you do something special, in secret, for someone else.
Check out what Ms. Sproles said about her class’s experience:
“Our class had so much fun participating in the classroom caper. They were so excited to sneak in the room while the students were away and give them treats from our treat tub. When the students returned we could hear them squealing and wondering who did it! To this day, they still don't know who did it. Plans are to caper a younger classroom this time. We've learned that doing something good for others feels good for us. A little lesson in selflessness.”
Students learn about the Cabin Caper in the children’s book every class gets for free with our program. The book highlights our Camp High Five character theme all about friendship.
Because Ms. Sproles’s entry on www.CabinCapers.com had the most votes this past semester, they won an iPad Mini. And it looks like the kindness could go viral, as they plan to caper another class soon.
The contest continues through the end of the school year, so there’s still a chance to win (and of course, have some fun), so start your friendly scheming and plan to commit a Cabin Caper this semester!
Go to www.CabinCapers.com to learn more, view other entries, and submit your own. Anyone can participate!
