As part of a senior project at Bethel High School, some students are hoping to get adults involved in their good deeds.
The 2nd annual BHS Kindness week is coming up next month and students are helping the Scotty Fund. The local organization was started more than two decades ago in memory of 3-year old Scott Anderson, who lost his life to cancer. Scotty’s brother, Brett, is a senior at BHS.
Senior Audrey Garcia says the idea behind Kindness Week is to improve the school climate and to foster inclusion. Students are selling Bethel Runs on Kindness t-shirts to raise money for the Scotty Fund and a number of local companies have already gotten on board. Town employees have also been placing orders.
Senior Anna Habeck says it’s a way to see kindness in action. Senior Camryn Walsh says the t-shirts will be worn at the end of Kindness Week. Community members who order t-shirts are asked to wear them on Friday, February 15.
Order forms and payment should be submitted to the Bethel High School main office by the end of the school day tomorrow.
