This week of January 25-29, the SADD organization sponsored “The Great Kindness Challenge” in all three schools. This challenge was to promote acts of kindness in our everyday lives, which included giving tasks for students to complete.

All students were given the option to pick up a challenge checklist and complete as many acts of kindness as they could.  At the end of the week, students were asked to return these checklists for a chance to be randomly drawn for some cool prizes! Members of SADD hung posters all around the buildings to promote this effort and even decorated fences at each school with cups to spell out words of kindness and encouragement. This global effort is a great way to help make communities more joyous and kind, happening in over 110 countries around the world!
