Acts of Kindness

Since its first year in 2014, the Mandeville Elementary's Kind Kids Club has been spreading acts of kindness across St. Tammany Parish. One of the club's points of emphasis is sending KIND messages to random classes at different STPPS schools. The only request? The Kind Kids Club hopes that the recipients of their KIND messages will "pay it forward" by sending KIND messages to other schools in their community.

The Kind Kids Club's influence doesn't stop with handwritten notes. At the end of its first year, the students created a "Buddy Bench" for the playground because they knew some students tend to feel the effects of social isolation. Sitting on the bench acts as an unspoken invitation for friendship and inclusion. They painted the bench with bright colors and added their handprints along with Aesop’s quote: “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” Socktober – I am attaching a flyer to this email that describes the annual Socktober event.

Additionally, Kind Kids Club members held a sock drive called Socktober to collect new socks for families in the need. The students also created handmade ornaments which were shared with local assisted living facilities during the holidays.

These Mandeville Elementary students are a great example of working together to make STPPS and St. Tammany Parish a better place.
