4th-grade class wins NBC Kindness Challenge

  •  Mrs. Nichols' and Mrs. Comins' fourth-grade class at Brownville-Glen Park Elementary has been named the winner of the month-long NBC Kindness Challenge.

    The $250 prize is provided through the Northern New York Community Foundation and will be used in the classroom. “The efforts made by you in your classroom to promote anti-bullying will help shape our youth into becoming better people and make the world a better place,” the foundation’s director Rande Richardson wrote in its congratulatory letter to the class.

    The fourth-graders were selected from more than 60 classes that participated. Among the acts of kindness the students performed were holding doors for others, giving compliments and cleaning up after others.
