The Great Kindness Challenge encourages is a grassroots initiative that encourages students to practice random acts of kindness to fellow students, their families and strangers.

Elm Road has participated in the national initiative for the past couple of years, thanks to Media Aide Linda Knapp who first  heard about the project and brought it to the school.

Youth Services Bureau and Penn-Harris-Madison School Corp. Counselor Andrea Shell led the exercises. Students played the "Roll a R.A.K.” (Random Acts of Kindness) game where they rolled a die and the number on the die determined the random act of kindness they would display to their fellow students.
