Cactus Trails wellness walk, family project encourages kindness in the community

Cactus Trails Elementary families enjoyed the school’s first-ever wellness walking community event late last semester at the campus.

The Cactus Trails physical education department and school counselors invited students, parents and families to engage in the healthy walk and participate in the family kindness stone project.

“One of the initiatives that we always try to teach our kids is that being kind can change the world,” said Erica Armijo, physical education teacher at Cactus Trails. “We need to teach kids everywhere that kindness is a part of life.”

Families decorated stones with kind messages and pictures, which were used to adorn the school’s walking path for the community to enjoy.

“It’s a good thing to teach kids about kindness while they are young, so they know to respect and be nice to others,” said Cactus Trails parent Mike Peoples.

Close to a thousand stones now form the pathway and the school hopes to continue the family kindness stone project as a regular tradition, Armijo said.

The first family walk and kindness stone event, which was conducted during PE class times, resonated with students who enjoyed spreading the kindness message.

“It’s important to be kind to people because if you are kind to them, they will learn about being kind too,” said fourth grader Audrey Guereque.
