There is a club at North Star Middle School whose members go about the business of brightening up everyone’s day.
Members of the Random Acts of Kindness Club do things such as put positive sticky notes on other students’ lockers and place gold pots around the school for students to find and turn in for chocolates, according to member and eighth grade student Molly Gontis.
“We meet every month and have snacks and talk about different ways to spread kindness through the school,” she said.
The club sponsored a dress-down kindness week during which students had the option to participate in a daily themed dress down, and North Star school board member Kathy Shaffer was invited to meet with each grade level and promote her message of kindness with the use of “Be Kind” candy bars, according to middle school Principal Zachary Vena, who is proud of what the club has accomplished.
The middle school, which educates students in grades five through eight, has been devoted to the theme of kindness in February and in March, he said.
The club is relatively new but is already making a difference, he said.
