Acts of Kindness

Acts of compassion and thoughtfulness filled the halls of Riverhead Central School District’s schools during the weeks of Jan. 28 and Feb. 4 as students took part in the annual Great Kindness Challenge, which aims to foster kindness within schools and is spearheaded by the district’s Peacemakers, a group facilitated by Riverhead CAP’s Elementary school social worker, Shannon Kutner.  The Peacemakers are an anti-bullying group. 

Riverhead’s elementary students stepped up to the challenge by performing as many random acts of kindness as they could with teachers fostering a multitude of kindness lessons in their classrooms. 

At Phillips Avenue and Roanoke Avenue elementary schools, fourth-graders in the Peacemakers Club decorated their schools with kindness-themed signs and created kindness rocks along with their teachers. They also met with the original members of the club, who are now in high school.  

Aquebogue Elementary School took on the challenge by hosting school spirit days and collecting change, called, “kind coins” for those in need.

At Riley Avenue Elementary, every class designed kindness banners and hung them outside of their classrooms as part of a schoolwide contest. Students also wrote kind notes to their peers, which were delivered by the school’s student council as part of a letter writing campaign to spread warmhearted sentiments.

In Riverhead Middle School and the high school, students worked to cross off kindness checklists provided to them by the Riverhead Community Awareness Program’s social workers, who are placed in those schools. 


One fish, two fish…

Kindergartners at Phillips Avenue Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District got a special treat on Jan. 10 when Riverhead Middle School students visited their classrooms to present them with the stuffed fish they had hand-sewn. 

The middle school students worked on the fish for several weeks as part of a community service project for their family and consumer sciences class, taught by Amy Doucette. 

In addition to giving each kindergartner a stuffed fish and a special note, the Riverhead Middle School students read them the book “Rainbow Fish and the Big Blue Whale” by Marcus Pfister.
