“No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop
The average HHS student’s life is busy, stressful, and chaotic. When we get an anonymous note in our locker with a piece of candy, a free cookie from a classmate in the hallway, a “happy birthday!” card on our locker, a cake after the last night of a game or show that we were a part of, or a good luck message before a particularly difficult test, our mood is bound to improve as we feel thought of and connected to some larger community in our school. When we fundraise money for a teacher in our community that is in need of support, or for a type of cancer that affects many of the families in our school community personally, or to give the last two kids involved in the Holiday Baskets Helpers program who were not sponsored a holiday basket, we feel accomplished. These are all a few examples of the many Random Acts of Kindness (RAKs) that the club DoRAK (Do Random Acts of Kindness) did this past school year.
As we do small things here and there throughout the year, we become part of the three way positive effect. There’s the positive effect on the recipient, the positive effect on you, the giver, and the biggest positive effect on the other HHS student who passes by and witnesses the act.
Help better connect the HHS community and improve the school atmosphere as we go about our busy lives in several ways:
1) be a regular member of DoRAK and plan/organize RAKs,
2) be a part of the Facebook group and email list to hear of upcoming RAKs and jump in for those that sound interesting,
or 3) just make an effort to do at least one random act of kindness every day.
Sign up to be a part of DoRAK at the Activity Fair on Friday!
