Today is Random Acts of Kindness day in Windsor and Essex County, and that is not lost on students with the public School Board. Here is a snap shot of some of their good deeds:
- Hugh Beaton Public School is building a Kindness Caterpillar. Names of students seen performing an act of kindness will be put on a circle of paper and attached together in a line forming the body of the caterpillar.
- GAINS (Giving Attention to Individual Needs) students at Southwood Public School will be cleaning a nearby park.
- Malden Central Public School students will be visiting seniors’ home in the Amherstburg area.
- Forest Glade Public School students will visit residents of Aspen Lake retirement home.
- Amherstburg Public School is holding a canned food drive for the local food bank.
- PASS (Public Alternative Secondary School) students and staff will rake leaves for their neighbours.
- Belle River District High School students will deliver cookies to local businesses; Grade 9 students will write letters of encouragement to Grade 8s at feeder schools; and Grade 12 students will play charades with seniors at local nursing homes.
- J.L. Forster Secondary School students will make breakfast for STEPS (Skills to Enhance Personal Success) students.
- At Kingsville District High School, baked goods also figure prominently as Random Acts of Kindness. Students will be giving cookies to bus drivers and parents dropping students off at the school in the morning. KDHS Student Council also plans to surprise STEPS (Skills To Enhance Personal Success) students with free pizza during the lunch hour.
