It was a rainbow-filled event at West End Elementary School in the Lynbrook Public School District as students and staff completed the Color Kindness Challenge, which emphasized the importance of being kind to one another.
Over the course of April, students shared random acts of kindness with their peers, and Principal Leah Murray shared ideas for acts of kindness each morning. As students showed kindness with their actions, they were rewarded with a Kindness Color Card. Each class filled up their own kindness rainbows posted outside their doors.
At the end of the month, the West End community gathered in a rainbow of colored shirts to take a school picture in the shape of a rainbow.
