The Kindness Rocks Project is a worldwide project to spread kindness by coloring a rock and writing a positive message on it. The Kindness Rocks Project’s mission is “One message at just the right moment can change someone’s entire day, outlook, life.”

Our school is helping spread this kindness. Everyone in the fifth grade painted a rock and wrote a unique quote on it. Our messages are inspirational and can make someone feel much better if they are having a bad day. We placed the rocks around the classroom, so it is nice to look at them when we get frustrated or sad.

We also decided that if the rocks can make us feel better, we can make other people happy. It is a good feeling to see that your rock is missing because you know someone took the rock to keep the message with them to help them feel better.

Kindness rocks can help people get motivated or just make them feel better after having a tough day. It also makes you feel great knowing you helped brighten someone’s day.
