For the second year in a row, students in the South Sioux City Community School District took part in Choose Kind week from Feb. 12-16.

This year, however, the word “Respect” was added to the reflect the school's push for kindness and respect.

Students took part in multiple projects designed to brighten the days of others including running a blanket drive, making Valentines for local nursing homes and hospitalized children, making cards and bringing donuts to police officers, cleaning up their schools and putting together care packages for those in the military.

The project was inspired last year by the book “Wonder,” by R.J. Palacio, which was read by Lewis and Clark Elementary teacher Erica Bowman's class. More specifically, the line from the book, “If you're given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind.”

Third graders at Lewis and Clark Elementary made fleece tie blankets from materials donated by Sunnybrook Community Church and the school store to be given to children at the Crittenton Center.

“It's a great project,” said Ambre from the Crittenton Center. (She declined to share her last name for privacy purposes.) “It gives the kids at Crittenton a chance to have something special of their own.”
