GHS students demonstrate ‘Acts of Kindness’

As part of Golden Hills School’s Character Education programstudents participate in weekly lessons and activities to promote good character traits and service to the community.

On March 1 they put what they learned into practice through the creation of Act of Kindness Day. Eleven teams (made up of students from junior kindergarten through eighth grade) brainstormed ways to show kindness and came up with some tangible ways they could reach out to those needing extra support in the greater Sacramento community. Projects ranged from collecting personal hygiene supplies for the homeless to visiting local retirement communities to raising money to support an animal shelter — all very heartfelt acts of kindness.
