On May 6, I went to St. Anthony Catholic School for our monthly Kindness Workshop. The Act of Kindness from my book, “Plant a Garden of Kindness, A Child’s Guide to Filling a Year with Weekly Acts of Kindness”, that Ms. Rupnik chose for this workshop was “#32 – Clean Your Park”.
We all had a great time. The kids really felt proud of their hard work because they knew that it was important, and that it was making their great school even greater. You can read my original post about this Act of Kindness, with important steps for completing it, here.
Today, I wanted to share one of the beautiful stories from that day ….
A Found Ring
While cleaning up, the children found a ring by the front entrance to the school. The fantastic Ms. Rupnik took this opportunity to talk to the kids about what to do when you find a lost item that you are pretty sure someone else loves and is missing. The finder of the ring wanted to keep it. But they talked about how sad the person who lost it would be. They decided that it was best to take the ring to the office to try to find its original owner. The children were very proud to present this ring to the Office Administrator.
