December Do Good encourages acts of kindness during the holiday season

December 2016, All Locations – Throughout December, American Institute students and staff were encouraged to find ways to contribute to the school community through the annual “December Do Good” competition. Students who demonstrated acts of kindness toward other students earned the opportunity to win a prize.

Every time a student or staff member did a good deed, they got to spin our ‘Do Good Wheel’,” said Brooke Baran, Vice President of Education. “We want to celebrate those little acts that really make a difference in the lives of our students and our school community.”

Antonio James, a student at the Toms River campus, was nominated for a chance at the wheel because of his dedication to helping his fellow classmates with their lab work. For his patience and kindness, Antonio got to spin for the chance to win one of several themed prizes, including the “Sweet Tooth” (a bag of candy bars), “Homebody Heaven” (a candle, facemask, and warm fuzzy socks), and “Feel the Music” (headphones and an iTunes gift certificate).

“This is our fourth year doing this project, and we all really look forward to it,” said Ms Baran. “It motivates students to do good knowing that their acts of kindness will not go unnoticed or unappreciated.
