Kindness is Contagious
Friday, February 26th, 2021—Throughout the month of February, Utica Academy of Science high school’s National Honor society challenged its fellow students, and teachers to participate in their Kindness Challenge. The challenge in theory was quite simple, but left a huge impact on the Atoms and even gained attention and recognition from Assemblywoman Buttenschon.
In efforts to support Utica Academy of Science high school's National Honor Society, the teachers, faculty and staff put together a fun, quick message titled, Kindness is Contagious. It's with simple acts of kindness both big and small that make an impact on someone's life and society. Performing a kind gesture or act is so powerful that it has been known to increase your happiness, improve relationships with others and the best part is it’s free!
Please head to our Facebook page to view the Utica Academy of Science high school's Kindness is Contagious message. We hope this inspires you to throw kindness around like confetti and perform simple acts of kindness every day.
