    This month our school held Kindness Week. This week was packed with tons of kind, amazing activities. We created a Kennedy Kindness Snapchat filter and a photobooth for students to take pictures and post using our hashtag (#KennedyKindess). Throughout the week we had activities going out in our quad, kindness grams for students to send to eachother, and more! On Wednesday we had a local radio station come out to play music and students received cool prizes such as concert tickets, shirts, and more! We also had kindness messages on posters around school AND on post-its that were placed in bathrooms, hallways, classsroom doors, EVERYWHERE!! You can check out our Instagram page, @arckennedy to view photos from the week!

    I have shown kindness this month by not only spreading it towards the people I know but I also have tried to make an effort to talk to new people and build a closer relationship with people who I know that are going through a difficult time. I think it is crucial to spread kindness especially in this month that is the commencement of the new year spreading kindness will set the year up for you so that it just becomes a habit. I was given the opportunity to volunteer at my local senior citizen center and really bonded with the wise minds of my community sharing stories and experiences that build my characteristics to grow as a leader. I have also been able to spread kindness by telling my teachers in person about how much I appreciate them and am thankful for everything they have done for, and I also brought them a fruit basket to let them know that I support them especially right now in a time where teachers are not being treated fairly.

    This month, I have shown kindness by teaching the importance of it to local Elementary schoolers at my local park. I believe it is important for them to understand how their unknowingly demeaning words may impact others negatively and how casual words of encouragement can make their friends and peers feel accepted and happy. Also this serves as way to brighten their day through bonding activities after they may have felt discouraged after taking a hard math test or facing instances of bullying. I have also gone the extra mile to ensure those around me are emotionally okay.

    This month, I have shown kindness by always smiling and/or saying hi to my peers throughout the hallways of my high school. In my extracurricular activities, I spend my time uplifting people as this is a difficult time with school and other things that are keeping teenagers busy and stressed. During track practice, I uplift and encourage people who may not feel strong in certain events they are doing and make sure I talk to everyone so that no one is alone. I make sure that I keep a positive attitude, show I care and treat people with kindness because if others see, they may want to be more positive and caring as well, and because it is the right thing to do. 😉

    This month has been the most positive month I’ve had in a while. Any situation that I have encountered, I’ve approached it with kindness. I empathize with the person and talk it through until we come to a compromise or a solution. I tend to give compliments to everyone, even strangers, because it puts a smile on their face and when people are happy, I’m happy. I’ve also started to walk around with my head high and a smile on my face and this lightens other people’s day because they see the happiness that’s radiating from my smile and I think it makes them happier. I’ve also started saying good morning to people I don’t know, like in the hallway at school or at a local supermarket. This makes me feel kinder because I’m not ignoring someone just cause I don’t know them. I make the effort to make them feel appreciated because people deserve to feel great and people deserve kindness, no matter what.

    I have been babysitting a family friend’s newborn for free since she can’t afford a paid one. I think it’s really important to help whenever and wherever you can even if you don’t get something back, it’s what keeps the world spinning.

    In order to spread kindness and help others, I volunteer as often as possible and make sure I am constantly aware of my surroundings so that I can help those around me. At school, I volunteer every friday in the special education department helping the students with school work or just playing games and doing activities with them. I do this to make my school a more inclusive environment and spread my love to those around me and in return I gain great friendships. After break, I have also worked to go out of my way to open doors for people, smile at my peers in the hall, and make new friends. My goal is to have a new conversation with one person each day! Since the new year started, I have also made sure to thank those around me for being in my life in hopes to brighten their days. I can’t wait to continue to spread kindness throughout the new year!

    I show kindness by volunteering as much as I can. I’ve been staying positive and encouraging it in others in my community. I try my hardest to include those who don’t get included, whether it be in events or even the yearbook. It makes me feel good to focus on others and how i can help.

    I have serve at my church as much as possible! And I’ve been trying really hard to bring more kindness to my school. I’ve been trying to keep my head up more and smiling at as many people as I can. I stopped caring about how creepy or wierd I look doing it, because I know a smile can make someone’s day. It’s made mine. I’ve also been enforcing the No one sits alone rule on my self and my friend. It’s making me happy to work hard to make a difference!
