Mercer Island students cultivate kindness

A Kindness Tree was created at Northwood Elementary to recognize compassionate acts.

As part of the Great Kindness Challenge, students at Northwood Elementary have been engaging in as many acts of kindness as they can through the end of January (and beyond).

Students checked off the kind acts they completed, and at the end of the month, reflected on their kind acts while creating a Kindness Tree in the commons near the library, covered with hearts for all the kindnesses shown.
