February Challenge

This time of year, especially Valentine’s Day, we try to express our love to others and show concern for others.  Each and every one of us has the power to make others feel better or worse. Making others feel better is much more fun and actually makes us feel good too. Kindness is to act friendly, generous and considerate to others. The staff in the Library Media Center will distribute tickets to students who demonstrate kindness.

Listen to the Alternate Routes’ song,  Nothing More. You are how you treat others. RAK someone today!
