Golden Elementary School’s Peer Assistance Leadership (PAL) hosted the Great Kindness Challenge on campus the week of January 22-26. Students received a list of kind acts, which they checked off as they completed. Acts of kindness included:
- Pick up trash on campus
- Help a younger student
- Make a kind poster for cafeteria helpers or PTA members
- Hold the door open for someone
- Bring a flower to the office staff
- And so many more!
Students who completed 25 acts were able to write their name on a banner and enter into a drawing. One student from each grade level was awarded a Golden t-shirt and a Target giftcard.
Last year, over 15,000 schools in 91 countries participated in the Great Kindness Challenge! Golden is proud to have participated in spreading kindness.
