Mustangs showed how bullying is weak and kindness is strength.
by: Tim Freed Managing Editor

The Windermere Elementary School Student Council recently helped organize the annual Great Kindness Challenge. Students devoted their time to perform as many acts of kindness as possible. They also participated in a spirit day, “Team Kindness.” Mustangs showed how bullying is weak and kindness is strength. The student council hopes this powerful initiative encourages unity and respect. Also, starting Feb. 10, the school will be kicking off its annual Pennies for Patients fundraiser. All money raised will go to help the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Windermere Elementary hopes to surpass its goal of $2,500. The top grade level will receive a pizza party.
