Lyndon Elementary-Middle School spreads kindness throughout the community

During Monday’s assembly, students of Lyndon Elementary-Middle School released balloons with random acts of kindness cards attached.

Monday, Jan. 11, Lyndon Elementary-Middle School had a kickoff assembly for the Tigers Pay It Forward Kindess Project. The entire student body released balloons with random acts of kindness cards attached to them.

Some of the kindness activities planned at the school for the project include:

  • As an act of pledging to show kindness, all LEMS students will place a handprint on display. A bulletin board or paper will be prepared outside the classroom. After the assembly, the students will place their orange handprint on the paper and sign their name under their handprint with black marker.
  • Teachers will try to add “kindness” to every lesson throughout the day.
  • Each classroom, office, cafeteria, library and custodian staff will post a statement outside their door stating how they plan to show kindness.
  • The Marlins Man will visit on January 29, 2016.
  • Kindness art will fill the school to establish a “Kindness Zone”.
  • A kindness pledge will be announced daily at LEMS. Kindness totals will be announced weekly.
  • A “Color Me Kind” run will take place in March or April. More information will be available later.
  • Businesses, churches, clubs and organizations will be contacted about participation in the project. The LEMS student council will walk to businesses to encourage participation and leave kindness tracks to track acts of kindness shown at the business. Businesses that place 20 kindness tracks in public view will be recognized at the “Color Me Kind” kindness run.
