Kindness grows at Wading River School

Students and staff at Wading River School are helping kindness grow in their community through the creation of a beautiful Kindness Tree.

Spearheaded by third-grader Madeline Rizzi along with other Girl Scouts, a tree trunk and branches were created on the cement walls of the cafeteria and are encouraging classmates, teachers and others to fill out the colorful leaves with kind messages for all to appreciate.

“A random act of kindness can take many forms including helping someone else, speaking kind words to another, or inviting someone new into your group of friends,” said Principal Lou Parrinello, as he recognized and thanked all those who joined in on this exemplary effort.
