Kindness Bench

There is a beautiful new “kindness” bench located in the Buddy Box on the upper playground at Ennis Elementary.  This bench was generously donated by the Kindness4Kate non-profit organization. The mission of the Kindness4Kate organization has been to promote kindness in schools and donate benches as a physical reminder that kindness does matter and can make a huge difference in someone’s life.  The organization took shape after the tragic loss of a school teacher who was well known for her kindness toward others (Please visit the website  to see pictures of the benches that have been donated and to learn more about the story behind this project).  

We would like to thank Elizabeth Childrey and the Kindness4Kate organization for their generosity and kindness.  We sincerely hope that this bench will help remind others of the importance of kindness in our world. As you can see from the picture, the bench is already being put to use!
