Features Op-Ed School Students of CHS

31 Days of Service

In this holiday season, students should take a moment to think about what they are doing for others around the school and community. With all the negativity around the nation, students should choose another way. There are many easy ways to bring joy and happiness to those who surround students this holiday season. One of these ways is through Random Acts of Kindness (RAoK) or little things that student can do throughout their day to put a smile on someone’s face. This December spread a little kindness to others. Try one of these 31 RAoK each day in December and in Ellen DeGeneres’ words, “Be kind to one another.”
