To kick off the second year of its Kindness Counts initiative, the elementary school welcomed award-winning storyteller, recording artist, actor and author LuAnn Adams and her assembly program “Celebratin’ Children.” During the PTA-sponsored program, Ms. Adams used puppets and instruments to tell folk tales from around the world featuring inspirational, can-do kids. “The children in these tales take obstacles and make them opportunities,” explained Ms. Adams.

As part of the campaign, which encourages and celebrates acts of kindness within the school, students will take the kindness pledge, and throughout the year acts of kindness will be recorded and displayed on the kindness tree and read over the loudspeaker.
