Seniors in Zach Gosse’s leadership class at the Meadowbrook Alternative Program in the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District are learning about kindness and its effects on society.
To demonstrate this on a hyperlocal level, students brainstormed the Kindness Campaign. On Oct. 14, they set up in the hallway of MAP and offered passersby a cup of hot or cold apple cider. Payment was a handwritten Post-it note for someone’s potential future need.
“We just wanted to spread positivity,” noted student Sergio Prongay.
“And provide an act of kindness,” added student Jordan Nelson.
The Post-its were added to a whiteboard which will remain in the hallway.
“This way if someone needs some uplifting or is feeling bad, they can just take a note and hopefully it will make them feel better,” added Nelson.
