Kindness matters in schools
Thomaston — Lura Libby School celebrated the Great Kindness Challenge the week of Jan. 27 — something that staffers hope will instill the behavior as a lifestyle.
Students in kindergarten through fourth grade and staff were recognized for showing kind and caring behavior toward others. Their random acts of kindness — helping someone who was sad, letting someone look at a library book, voluntarily offering someone a snack, or helping someone tie their shoe — did not go unnoticed.
Principal Ainslee Riley also held the challenge at the Cushing Community School, culminating with the tallying of Caught Being Kind Tickets Jan. 3.
