"Random Acts of Kindness" project! 

In an effort to make our world a better place, Scales Mound School is kicking off the "Random Acts of Kindness" project!  Our JH & HS students, and staff members, are encouraged to take a card from the bulletin board, perform the act of kindness written on the card, and then post a picture on social media to encourage other's to spread the kindness, as well!  So far, the project is off to a good start, many acts of kindness have already started popping up at our school including taping spare change to the vending machine, and leaving post-it notes of encouragement around the school!  Teachers have even started to see thank you notes left on their desks, white boards, and in their mailboxes. Together, one small act of kindness at a time, Scales Mound School is striving to make the world a better place!
