AOK Ladies spreads kindness throughout Knickrehm

The Acts of Kindness Ladies are celebrating their annual Random Acts of Kindness Week Oct. 8-12. During the week, the ladies choose a school to visit and read to. This year, Knickrehm Elementary was chosen.

A group of AOK ladies split up to read “How Full Is Your Bucket?” to each classroom. The book talks about the lesson that even when you’re feeling down and your bucket is running low, helping others fills your bucket and others’ buckets.

Jan Cook, AOK Ladies chairwoman and retired Grand Island Public Schools teacher, read to fifth graders on Monday. When Cook finished reading the book, she handed a small bucket and hot pink slips to Mrs. Meyer for the students. The students are to write down acts of kindness they do at home and have their parent or guardian sign the slip. The pink slip will then go into the class bucket so the AOK ladies can see all the good the students did. The AOK ladies will visit Knickrehm again on Friday.

Cook saw a quote in one Grand Island Senior High teacher’s room that seems to sum up what the AOK Ladies want to teach people: “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”\
