Kindergarteners Bring Seniors Joy

Hawthorn Elementary South School students brightened the day of senior citizen residents in assisted living at Brookdale in Vernon Hills by handing out homemade Valentine’s Day cards. The kindergarteners have been learning about the gift of kindness. They have been doing random acts of kindness for
others such as washing dishes, holding open a door, writing letters to sick children, and donating pet supplies to a shelter. The kindness acts are part of a larger school theme of building a school around happiness.
