Late last month the Holley-Navarre Intermediate School’s Student Council created the Seahawk Kindness Challenge, with three challenges.


On Jan. 27 the Kindness Pass It On began with the council creating three gifts, one for each grade level. The gifts included trinkets, notes, recess toys and such. The first class recipient benefits, then passes along a new gift to another class.


Today is the Take It Home challenge, with each student asked to follow a card featuring specific kindness tasks. Parents or guardians are asked to sign off on the task completion, and the students return the next day to share the accomplishments.


On Feb. 6, the Student Council will present the accumulation of the school’s Penny War to two charities: the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society and Kids House.


Amie Teschel and Annie Scott serve as the teacher sponsors for the Student Council.
