Kids at Washington Elementary performed skits and cheers in the gym as part of national kindness week.

Teachers will be tallying up the acts of kindness they see all week and students will be raising money towards Lymphoma and Leukemia with pennies.

VANESSA KOCKA - School Counselor: “We do set it up, also teachers re-enforce it as well, but it is up to the students to take it home and live it and hopefully it will make a positive difference for them.”

Kindness week wraps up Friday.
