• Today is the third day of Random Acts of Kindness Week, and our focus is APPRECIATION. When someone is kind to you — or helps you in some way — it’s important to be gracious and give them thanks.  That is showing appreciation. Do you have a friend that you can always depend on? Has one of your teachers taken the extra time to help you learn something new? Try to find the time today to say “thank you” to the people who mean the most to you. Remember: a simple “thank you” can go a long way!
