Tumbleweed Elementary students practice "Paying It Forward"


Tumbleweed Elementary students practice "Paying It Forward"

Ryan Nelson

The students in the RISE After School Program at Tumbleweed have been learning about different acts of kindness and caring. We started a program in which students are in charge of collecting pennies.  A plastic 16 oz jar is provided to each student, the students decorate them any way they choose. These jars are called the "Pay it Forward" penny jars.  Nothing more than pennies is accepted or allowed. This is not a fund raiser. These pennies are collected weekly by the Program Instructor and distributed at the end of each month to a charitable organization chosen by the winning class.  The message we want our students to learn is: Each penny is a small act of kindness and each small act can add up to a big difference
