Kind Acts Spread Positivity

Spreading kindness one act at a time, the students and staff at Susan E. Wiley participated in the Great Kindness Challenge from Jan. 23 to 27.

To kick off the event, the students watched a video challenging them to complete as many kind acts as possible featuring words of encouragement from administrators, teacher, custodians, secretaries, support staff and even their parents.

Throughout the week, students were tasked with creating a culture of kindness within their building, community and at home. Using the checklist of 50 kind acts, they started the challenge by decorating the hallways with messages of positivity.

Students created posters and hearts with inspirational messages.

Each day of the weeklong challenge featured different spirit day celebrations with students dressing in Copiague colors, crazy socks and hair, pajamas and their favorite sports jerseys.
