Essential 55 Rule # 11 in Action!

Essential Rule #11 is "Surprise others by performing random acts of kindness."  Pictured is Coach Rodriguez smiling because watch DOG Dad Mr. Beeler surprised her with a gallon jug of windshield washer fluid.  He knew that she was out and went out of his way to be kind.  This random act of kindness made her day! The Essential 55 written by Ron Clark is a great book to read.   Let's spread our random acts of kindness every day at Anderson!
