iUprep students finding a way to be kind!


Jaci Pope and Kati Moffett

Kindness. The quality that brightens the lives of many individuals on a daily basis. The quality that we, the contributors of The Random Acts of Kindness Group, think should be implemented in the daily schedule of every iUniversity Prep student.


This project was inspired by the month of December’s “Random Acts of Kindness” theme, created by Emma Johnson. Other contributors include: Alexander Hurst, Nathan Janak, Lauren Lawshe, Kati Moffett, Jaci Pope, Jess Pope, and Jordan Story. The group is overseen by Mr. Carter and Dr. Rogers.


Here are the responses that we have received so far:

She is the one who brought me to this school, and it is the best school I have ever been to. I thank her as often as I can for introducing me to this school. Remy has literally been there for me when even someone I considered my best friend and sister wasn’t there for me. And Payton. Payton Taylor is amazing. She makes me laugh so much. We just clicked the first time we talked and I’m so glad we met. And when all three of us are together? It’s just simply the best thing in the world. We laugh so much. Remy is the mom of the group even though I’m the oldest. They are seriously amazing and I’m so thankful for them.”

Although the project was centered around the month of December, we wish to expand year-round. Further, we are looking into the possibility of creating a club. This would mean more  than just delivering messages. Such as face to face opportunities for everyone to get together and have a great time. We wish to bring as much kindness and joy into our school as possible. In doing so, we cannot achieve this goal without your help!
