Random Acts of Kindness week at Harmony Science Academy
Our elementary school in Fort Worth, Texas, celebrated RAK week a week early due to scheduling issues. Each day we had a "theme" which was shared on the announcements. Monday was "All Kind Words" Day, Tuesday was "Look People in the Eye and Smile" Day, Wednesday was "Pick up Trash" Day, Thursday was "Share Notes of Kindness with Everyone" Day, and Friday was "Create Your Own RAK" Day. Students caught participating were rewarded with Kindness Coins which they loved. The staff was given a chance to RAK each other through a bulletin board in the lounge that said "HSA is Bubblicious." Sticky notes in bubble gum colors were available for them to write notes on. We have participated in every RAK special day/week this school year, and are starting to see a difference in our children and our staff. Our next goal is to get them to participate in RAKing every day, and not just designated days.
