Beards against bullies

Students rewarded for acts of kindness

(Continued)

“My little brother goes to school here, I went to school here, I think this is a great idea,” Potter said. “The principal got a hold of me, knowing I’m a barber, and I thought it’d be a lot easier if I had someone doing it with me, so I asked Leland if he wanted to come and help.”

Wade added, “We both graduated from Plainfield and went to barber school together. All of the kids are pretty excited about it. I think it’s nice to get the younger kids excited about something other than just school work.”

Students from Walters’ class explained the different kinds of kind acts they were recognized for.

“If people are alone, you can give them conversation and encourage them,” one student said. “If someone doesn’t have a partner, you be their partner.”

The students also helped their teacher distribute papers and do things around the classroom, helped other students who were having trouble with school work, and said they also take their kindness home with them.

“I want them to be aware that there are people doing nice things for others all the time,” Walters said.

One student added that she wants to make other people feel good, and maybe they will want to make others feel good too.

“It (kindness) can travel to different classes and maybe different schools,” she said.
