Science teacher Kim Finnerty works on adding another segment to the Links of Kindness chain that is now close to wrapping around the entire first floor.

For the past few weeks, science teacher Kim Finnerty has been working on a project called Links of Kindness, an activity in which students and staff have been asked to write a kind thought about someone or something on a piece of construction paper and they are being combined to make a one long chain, a chain she is working on wrapping around the entire school.

“I believe that each day it is important to remember the good things,” Finnerty said. “During this time of year everyone gets so very busy, we often forget to hold the door open for the person behind us or say ‘excuse me’ when we bump into someone. I wanted to make sure I took time to be kind and I thought we all could use this.”

Freshman Mackenzie Tufts likes the impact it has on the student body. “I think the links of kindness was a really sweet idea,” she said. “People are usually more eager to be mean to others than to say nice things, so I think it makes them a little more positive.”
