Kindness and Compassion (KC) Club

The Chain Reaction 
of Kindness begins with YOU!

Our character education program is Rachel's Challenge which stresses spreading kindness one person at a time to create a chain reaction. The Acacia Kindness and Compassion Club (KC Club) comprised of 3rd - 6th graders is an active group on campus that creates projects so support and foster kindness! 

There are many projects throughout the year where students in the club work together to create school wide projects where all students can help start a "chain reaction" of kindness.  

17-18 School Year Projects: 

Love Our Schools Day
Acacia was feeling lots of love as members of Palmcroft Church, Grand Canyon University and the Acacia Kindness and Compassion Club got together for Love Our Schools Day. Many areas of our campus looked SO much better because of their hard work
Pennies for Patients
Acacia Kindness Club partnered with Pennies for Patients today to kick off our upcoming goal of raising money to help find a cure for blood cancer. Brittany from the Arizona Leukemia and Lymphoma Society helped students understand the role white and red blood cells have in fighting cancer. More information will be coming home soon!                

 Ronald McDonald House 
Students used donated craft supplies to create Christmas Cards for the kids at the as well as seeking book donations share their love of learning. 

Past Projects that are still promoting kindness through the Acacia Community and beyond: 

Owl Ornaments: 
The KC Club made these adorable owls  that have a small heart stamped with "KC" attached to an owl by
a chain. The small red note attached reads: 

 "A++ Chain Reaction!   You have found an Acacia A++ Owl! These trinkets are a symbol of kindness and compassion that Acacia's A++ students wish to pass on. 
-Treat others the way you want to be treated. 
-Be a positive influence. 
-Speak words of kindness. 
Create a CHAIN REACTION and continue to spread kindness and compassion on to others with your actions and/or by passing the owl to others!"

Acacia students will be leaving these owls in random locations in addition to hospitals, nursing homes and other public establishments for others to find.

Kindness benches: 

In 2015-16, the KC Club students decided they would like a place for children to go that need a friend or are feeling down. Thanks to our business partner, Our neighborhood Lowe's (Store Manager Chuck and employee Ray), they made it all come true for us! They donated the supplies and Ray crafted the benches. Our students painted them and decided where they should be placed on each playground. What is so magical about this is they are really working! Daily, students notice someone on the benches and in no time at all, a friend is there to talk and get them up and playing.
