Third-graders perform random acts of kindness
Students in the Hart County Charter School System are learning what is known as the seven mind sets - a character education curriculum.
“We wanted to “Live to Give” and use our “Passion First” to bring random acts of kindness to people within our community,” said North Hart Elementary School third-grade teacher Meghann Brown.
So, North Hart third-graders from the classrooms Brown’s classroom as well as the classrooms of Taylor Hanahan went out into the community.
“We wanted to give back by handing out items like flowers, chips, Hostess treats, goodie bags, and even toys,” Brown said. “The students also made cards that had sweet messages about wanting to spread the love to others. Even though our entire classes couldn’t make it to Ingles, everyone contributed. Each student either made a card and/or brought in items to be handed out. It was a class effort.”
According to Brown, often when going to the grocery store people are asked to buy cookies, donuts, raffle tickets and to donate to different charities and churches.
“As we all know, we have no problem giving within our community but when do we ever receive anything without getting something in return?” Brown said. “The smiles, the thank you’s and even the ‘You just made my day’ was so worth it. We weren’t looking for a anything in return besides hopefully a smile and a ‘Have a great day too.’”
