In celebration of Random Acts of Kindness Week, Sylvan Avenue Elementary School recently took part in a series of themed days to commemorate kind acts noticed throughout the course of the school day. 

As a fun challenge from school psychologist Dr. Peggy Gasper, students were asked to see if they could complete 100 acts of kindness in honor of the 100th day of school to be displayed in the main hallway’s bulletin board. The school surely displayed their acts of kindness, as well as more than 150 Kind Act Hearts were reported to have been collected during the course of the week. 

Examples of themes celebrated that week included Sports Day; Peace, Love and Kindness Day; Be Super Kind Superhero Day; Kindness Warms the Heart for Valentine’s Day and Cozy Up to Kindness Pajama Day. 

Additionally, the school participated in a schoolwide “Drop Everything and Read A Book” activity in which every class read a book about kindness at the same time to show unity and how important kindness is to Sylvan.
