To encourage kindness around campus, we are going to start a


  • Each classroom will create their own chain
  • The links of the chain will each be 2 inches by 12 inches, varying in color.
  • A student will write on a link if they have seen kindness to others, have had a kind gesture done to them, or they have acted kindly to another person.
  • They will write the incident as well as their name on a link, then that link will be attached to the others.
  • Aida will be placing in your box, some start up construction paper with an example of the size attached to it by this Friday.
  • At the end of the year we will connect all of or our chains to see how long it will stretch!!!
