Third-graders from Babylon Grade School participated in the national “Random Acts of Kindness” campaign by reading Margery Cuyler’s “Kindness Is Cooler, Mrs. Ruler.” They also created a bulletin board filled with valentine notes explaining the recent acts of kindness they performed for others.
    
According to RandomActsofKindness.org, the program is a school-based initiative that was founded on the belief that teaching kindness in schools can make a big difference in students’ lives. The Random Acts of Kindness campaign includes lesson plans and classroom activities that directly correlate with state standards such as conflict resolution, communication skills, decision-making skills and stress management – providing academic staff a way to teach and reinforce these new skills to their students.
