Kindness Counts-Mrs. Suzi Hand


Telephone Game



 Have you filled your bucket today? Holy Trinity students are up to the challenge this year as part of a new program, Kindness Counts. Under the creative direction of Suzi Hand, students will explore ways to not only pay it forward, but to also focus on empathy and Christian values.

      During the first morning assembly, new principal, Desiree Lizana, read the book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today?, by Carol McCloud, to an attentive group of Kindergarten through Sixth graders. Students were introduced to the concept that each of us has the ability to ‘fill each other’s bucket with kind acts’, and in turn, it ‘fills’ our own bucket with positive feelings. Actual buckets are located in each classroom and around the school to be “filled” with strips of colored paper representing Acts of Kindness witnessed or performed by students, faculty, staff, and parents. These Acts of Kindness will be counted in November and integrated into HTCS’ Library Christmas Tree, bringing the Kindness Counts Campaign into the Bay St. Louis community. As part of the program, Holy Trinity will also participate in Anti-Bullying Awareness Month in October. The Kindness Counts Campaign will take place during the first semester of the school year. For more information, please contact Suzi Hand at HTCS.
