Draper Middle School students are sharing a whole lot of kindness this week.
Draper’s Peers for Peace, along with the Draper Guidance Department, is spearheading the school’s participating in the nationally recognized Great Kindness Challenge.
Throughout the week, students and staff at Draper are being challenged to complete a 50 Random Acts of Kindness checklist. There are also various “Kindness Stations” set up during lunch periods where students can do “Kindness Grams” for their friends or teachers, leave uplifting notes for students that may be having a bad day, paint rocks for the school’s “Kindness Garden,” decorate a link for the “Kindness Chain” or take part in the “Helping Hands” poster with inspirational stories of kindness and perseverance.
Staff are also wearing “Choose Kind” t-shirts during the week.
“Our hope for this week is to spread kindness throughout our Mohonasen community to help make our school a kinder and more compassionate place for all,” said school counselor Angie Santabarbara.
To get students in the spirit of unity and kindness, students and staff an dress for the theme of the day as follows:
Monday: Be a Superhero for Kindness (Wear your favorite Superhero clothes)
Tuesday: Crazy for Kindness (Crazy hair/clothes day)
Wednesday: I Dream of Kindness (Pajama Day)
Thursday: Peace, Love, and Kindness Day (Dress like the 60s & 70s Era, Hippie/Tie-Dye)
