act of Kindness
In just one hour, Summer Stoutes, left, second-grade teacher at Rutland Northeast Primary School, and her band of student elves distributed nearly 300 cards encouraging acts of kindness around downtown Rutland Friday morning. The students created laminated cards with the message: “You must complete 3 acts of kindness.” The card asked participants to document and share photos of their acts to the “Kindness Elves” Facebook group. Seen here, Rowena Tuttle, center, and Nahdia Lee put cards and a candy cane underneath a windshield wiper. See a photo of the kids enjoying hot cocoa after their labor of love on Page A2.
