As part of a challenge for Kindness Week, held the week of Jan. 27, students at Riverhead’s Riley Avenue Elementary School spent hours making more than 700 origami “Kindness Koala” bookmarks, which they sold to raise funds for animals injured in Australia’s devastating fires. For their hard work, the students raised more than $800 that will be donated to

Also during the week, students participated in daily kindness challenges, created kindness banners, worked through a weekly kindness checklist and engaged in a reading of “Emily and the Kindness Bracelet” by Lisa Krekeler.
