Kindness was overflowing at Manetuck on Feb, 14, complementing the school’s celebration of P.S. I Love You Day with a special Cultivating Kindness assembly to spread the message of how one act of kindness can change the world.

The children heard stories about how kindness can be passed from one person to the next. Students from kindergarten through second grade learned about being kind and sharing smiles, while the group from third to fifth grade focused on doing regular random acts of kindness. The assembly also explained what bullying actually is and what to do to counteract it.
