Redstone Elementary takes part in kindness challenge

Kids end week by exchanging high-fives with police officers

Posted

Students at Redstone Elementary School in Highlands Ranch took part in the Great Kindness Challenge, a national call for compassion, the week of Jan. 27.

Each day, the school hosted spirit days to highlight the acts of generosity completed by their students.

The challenge, organized by a nonprofit founded in California, comes with a checklist of acts of kindness. The list includes things like picking up trash, complimenting someone and hugging a friend.

“Our students have been challenged to do acts of kindness throughout the week,” according to a statement from the school.

On the morning of Jan. 31, the last day of the school week, students were greeted with music and high-fives from local police officers and firefighters.

The purpose of the initiative is to prevent bullying and improve school climates and student engagement, according to a fact sheet from the nonprofit.

The event is free for schools to participate in and takes place in the last week of January each year.
