Northeast Ohio third graders paint kindness rocks

Kicking off the New Year with kindness

Students from the class visit The Popcorn Shop, where the kindness pledges are on display for the community to view.

Third graders at a school in Cleveland, Ohio kicked off the near year by writing kindness pledges and painting kindness rocks. Their pledges highlighted ways the students vowed to be kind to our planet and ways to be kind in their community, at school and at home. Their kindness pledges were displayed at The Popcorn Shop in Chagrin Falls for the community to enjoy. Chagrin Valley Today shared with their readers more about the school’s project.

The class also painted kindness rocks to sprinkle throughout Northeast Ohio (and, beyond). Their painted rocks included encouraging words and reminders to “be kind!” They added IDs from GoRock.com to able to see on a map where their rocks travel and make others smile.
