Kindness Chain

The students at Southwest School have been working on being kind to others. We have been making a Kindness Chain all school year. The 1st quarter, our Kindness Chain was 77 feet long. For the 2nd quarter, it grew 109 feet to 186 feet long. At the end of the 3rd quarter, our Kindness Chain grew another 167 feet bringing to total length of our Kindness Chain to 353 feet. That is a lot of kindness. Great job Southwest Students. Continue to be kind and do good things for others.
