Monday was World Kindness Day and Springs School honored it by making a very, very long kindness chain. On each paper link a student wrote something kind about someone in the school or community, something they are thankful for, or something kind they have done or plan on doing.

“On my paper chain link, I wrote that I am grateful for our school’s I.T. department,” said Danielle Hamilton, the sixth grade English language arts teacher. Students in the Diversity Club made a beautiful poster and displayed it inside by the school’s entrance, and a Kindness Day bake sale was held yesterday. Students, including the sixth grader Jacob Ordonez, were very excited to buy some sweet treats.

“The vision this year in Diversity Club is to bring forth more initiatives where the whole school is involved,” said Vicki Firemark, who leads the club.

The money raised at the bake sale will support the local food pantry.
