Crystal school takes on “The Great Kindness Challenge”
The front entrance at Neill Elementary in Crystal Monday morning was loud. Staff and community leaders cheered and high-fived students as they walked through the doors.

Teachers and staff lined up and made a tunnel with their hands. The so-called "kindness tunnel" put a lot of smiles on students' faces.

"It was a fantastic way say good morning, fantastic way to share some love with these students," said Crystal City Council member Nancy LaRoche.

Monday was day one of "The Great Kindness Challenge," a worldwide campaign aimed at preventing bullying. There are events planned all week. Students were also given a check list of things they can do to be nice to others.

The goal is to keep up the effort, long after the campaign is over.

"We want them to understand that kindness true, genuine acts of kindness can not only change themselves, but their community, other people and really eventually the whole world," said Kelly Kulda, a school behavior coach.

The student council is also talking to students and staff about ways to be kind in the community.
