GES Hallways of Kindness program


The teachers and staff of Greenfield Elementary are hoping students will find ways to be kind during the holiday season and that the lesson cares on throughout the school year. The school kicked off its Light up the Hallways with Kindness program this week with grade level meetings. During the meetings, Bob Schumm, Greenfield Elementary School principal, read the story of Harry the Happy Mouse. It is story about a mouse named Harry who lives in the English countryside. During the story Harry helps a frog, but asks the frog to repay the kindness to someone else. The story then follows the good deed as it moves through other characters, who each selflessly help someone else, making themselves feel happy in the process. After the story the students and Schumm talked about simple acts of kindness that the students could do on a daily basis at school and at home in hope that these small acts of kindness would spread through the school and out into the community. Before leaving the meeting Schumm sprinkled all the students with kindness confetti as they headed back to class. As the program continues, students are challenged to perform acts of kindness every day and then write it down on a paper Christmas bulb. As bulbs are completed they are sent to the office to be hung in the school hallways during the holiday season. This program was started as a positive reinforcement effort to prevent bullying, but the school hopes the habit of being kind never ends.
