BeKind21

Our school and our town just completed BeKind21.

What was one thing you did to be kind to another person? Did it affect you too?

What was something kind that someone did for you? How did it make your day better?

21 days are only a small fraction of the 365 days in a year. Do you think you could keep doing a kind thing for someone each day? Why might it be important?
