Eagle River Elementary puts on first Kindness Week Submitted: 01/27/2015
Eagle River - In school, kids learn not only how to read and write but also how to be good neighbors. A Northwoods school joined a national effort this week to show kindness to each other and the community. Eagle River Elementary School will mark its first ever Kindness Week this week. It's part of a nationwide school celebration called The Great Kindness Challenge. Students of all grades are trying to perform as many random acts of kindness as they can. The school plans to hold a series of events throughout the week. On Tuesday the students listened to a speaker talk about what it means to be a "good person." Students will also make a point to thank the bus drivers and custodians every day this week. There is also a door decorating contest. On Friday the students will wear pajamas to school to dream of kindness.
