North Adams Elementary holds Random Acts of Kindness Week

The North Adams Elementary students pictured above were recognized with Kindness Awards during Random Acts of Kindness Week.

Students at North Adams Elementary School, along with Mrs. Young’s Sixth Grade Kindness Club could be observed doing random acts of kindness throughout the week of Feb. 12-18.
Random Acts of Kindness Week, or RAK Week,  is observed annually the second full week of February. This seven-day celebration demonstrates that kindness is contagious. It all starts with one act- one smile, one coffee for a stranger, one favor for a friend. Since it’s inception, RAK estimates that millions of celebrities, businesses, schools, and partners have participated in these weeklong celebrations.

These NAES Staff members were given Kindness Awards during Random Acts of Kindness Week.

At NAES, the Kindness Club scheduled a theme for each school day with a catchy saying like, “Dude, be nice to others”. On this particular day, students left encouraging words and positive phrases on bathroom mirrors, in the cafeteria, and by water fountains. Students were encouraged to sit by and play with someone new at lunch and recess.

During RAK Week, a group of NAES students made a visit to the Oakview Retirement Home.

Throughout the week, themes continued to change to show kindness to teachers and staff, their community, and  school. Each day Principal Deirdre Mills would read over the morning announcements ways students could get involved. Each day there was also a surprise from the members of the Kindness Club. One activity showcased was a visit to Oakview Retirement Home by the Kindness Club. Students gathered personal items along with entertainment items and delivered the items and smiles to the local residents.
By the end of the week, there were positive messages flooding the school. On the last day of the NAES Random Acts of Kindness Week, the Kindness Club awarded students and staff with Kindness Awards. These awards were given to individuals nominated because of their acts of kindness being displayed daily.
NAES asks all of you, “How can you be kind today?”

NAES students decorated their building with positive notes and messages of encouragement during their recent Random Acts of Kindness Week.
