“Kindness Chain” grows as elementary students show acts of kindness

In an effort to encourage kindness, Fayetteville Elementary School students are documenting their acts of kindness and adding them to the Kindness Chain, which stretches through the school’s hallways.

During November, the Fayetteville-Manlius School District students are asked to write down their acts of kindness on colorful strips of paper. These strips are linked together, creating the Kindness Chain.

The calendar display offers suggestions for acts of kindness that Fayetteville Elementary Students are encouraged to complete.

The calendar display, outside of the Main Office, offers suggestions for kind acts such as play with someone new, bake cookies to give away, share something with someone else and feed the birds.

The Kindness Chain was inspired by World Kindness Day, which falls on Nov. 13.

“We decided it’s worth celebrating the whole month of November. November often makes us think of gratitude and thankfulness. Kindness fits right in,” said Mrs. Myhill, the clerical aide who organized the Kindness Chain.

The chain continues to grow with each act of kindness and will remain on display until the end of November.
