Middle Schoolers Complete 1,000 Acts of Kindness

Butler6This month Scarsdale Middle Schoolers in 6th grade Butler house completed 1,000 Acts of Kindness. They were involved with helping people in the school and throughout the community.

As part of their project Butler 6 worked with Fountain 6, their sister house, to collect over 255 toys for the Children's Hospital at Montefiore. Students donated toys for Montefiore's Holiday toy drive. Next week the toys will be distributed to patients at the Children's Hospital Holiday Party.

In addition, Butler 6 started a new program called Adopt-a-Senior. For the holiday season each of the students in Jeanne-Marie Castiello’s social studies classes adopted a senior resident at the Schaffer Extended Care Center at Montefiore. Students purchased a gift for the 100 residents at Schaffer. Commenting on the program, Castiello said, "My students worked so hard this month. They did so many amazing acts like feeding the homeless, volunteering at various charities and of course the work with Montefiore. We teach them to be stewards of change, but it’s heartwarming to see 11 year olds taking action and making a difference in their own community."
