TOUGH TALK

Are you nice or are you kind? Is there a difference? How can we make kindness the norm? What random acts of kindness can you do this week? Here are some ideas:

  • Help a classmate with an assignment or remind them of due dates
  • Write a note of appreciation to a staff member
  • Donate items to a food drive or charity
