EAGLE RIVER - Kids face bullying in schools all the time.
That's one reason why the Eagle River elementary school holds its annual Great Kindness Challenge Week.
It's part of a nationwide challenge involving nearly 10,000 schools.
This year's kindness week in Eagle River wrapped up Friday with a musical assembly with Dave Dall.
Throughout the week, students were challenged to do random acts of kindness.
Some of them made posters thanking teachers and other faculty.
Second grade teacher Brenda Saltenberger enjoys organizing the yearly challenge.
"It's been very positive. They're all excited, they're all happy. We are going on spring break next week so it was a good week to spread that kindness and have that very positive attitude," said Saltenberger.
Saltenberger says the school uses the week long challenge as part of a larger kindness initiative.
"We have an initiative in our school. We have PBIS, which is our behavior program, and really kindness is all year long. It is not a day, it is not a week. It is all year long," said Saltenberger.
Saltenberger says the school had dress-up days all week to keep the kids interested.
