Freedom students raise money for Kindness Week
Fargo North Dakota 101 5th Street North 58102

Keeping in mind their motto of R.I.C.K. (respect, inclusion, compassion and kindness), the students of Freedom Elementary School raised money for Sanford Children’s Hospital during the school’s “Kindness Week,” March 3-10.

During that week, which included dress-up days like “superhero day,” the kids spent their week focusing on being kind to others in school and at home. Staff and students were encouraged to collect change for the hospital, and the class with the heaviest bags of change at the end of the week got to duct tape the school’s teachers down and throw pies at their faces.

Teachers, meanwhile, paid to pie the school’s administrators, with proceeds again going to the hospital.

The fourth-grade class also spent the week making fleece blankets, which were then donated to Sanford patients.

At the end of the week, they presented a check with all of their earnings to Sanford.

“I think it was a really good project,” school counselor Joan Houdek said. “It is great to have them give to someone in need. In life, we all need to help others, and the kids know that it may be them in need some day.”
