LAPLACE—During National School Counseling Week, Counselor Jennifer Russell challenged students to show big and small acts of kindness.

Students participated in a “Counselor’s Challenge,” taking home a form that listed different acts of kindness such as helping with a chore that’s not yours or complimenting a family member. Parents initialed the form for each act completed. At the end of the week, the forms were placed in a box for a drawing. The winning student was fifth-grader John Pidgeon.

Russell also taught lessons about showing kindness to others. Students played out different scenarios and how they could react to these scenarios with kindness.

The students then had a short writing activity and drawing they were able to create. Their work went into a bulletin board to display for the month of February.
