Students spread kindness

RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) is a Grade 5, 6 and 7 group from Grand Forks' Hutton Elementary School .

Last week

RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) is a Grade 5, 6 and 7 group from Hutton Elementary School that has been working tirelessly over the last few months to spread kindness throughout the community.

The missions are called “storms” and some of these have included “Kindness Tickets” on car windshields at Extra Foods and a “Ropes for Hope” art project.

This was done in collaboration with Greenwood Elementary where flags of encouragement were made for the community of Westbridge which was devastated by the fire.

Last week the students dressed up and “stormed” local streets “trick-or-treating” for non-perishable food items, which were donated to the local food bank. The students were seen with a wagon in tow carrying food items from neighbourhood houses to the school where a food donation bin is set up outside the office.

This bin will remain outside the office for one more week as more donations are encouraged to come in before taking all the goods to the food bank.

The students have identified how good it feels to spread kindness and most importantly, the intrinsic reward of giving to others. As a group we wish to spread as much kindness, support and encouragement as possible to our Grand Forks community.

Follow our weekly “storms” on the Hutton Facebook page and hopefully we will see you on our next mission
