Random Acts of Kindness

We want to “link up” with students, parents and teachers to help us perform 35,000 acts of kindness.

Between February 1-14, we’re asking students, families and teachers to work toward achieving our goal of 35,000 acts of kindness.

There are strips of paper that can be formed into links for a "Kindness Chain" that we will be displaying in the classroom this week and in our academy hallways next week. Please feel free to grab a strip and add to our chain.

We also encourage you to take photos and video to post to your Academy and personal social media page using the hashtag #KiddieAcademyKindness, to help spread the message of kindness.
