Send Us Your Kindness Photos

Sprague students have been encourage to complete acts of kindness during the month of January and build their own chain of kind deeds. As students complete their acts of kindness, they can cut, color, and attach their links together to complete a kindness chain to hang in their homes.


There are different ways that students can show their kindness from little deeds of helping their family to bigger acts of kindness like writing cards to veterans, nursing homes, and more. Please send photos to Communications Coordinator Margaret Van Duch at mvanduch@d103.org or text them to her at 847-791-3749.
