Today's assignment: Spreading kindness

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A local high school class has been working on a project this semester. The assignments-spreading kindness.

Students at Arvin High School are working diligently on a simple act, and they hope what they're doing in class will spread throughout Kern County.

That was the question Lori Ambrose asked her high school students. Their response-spread acts of kindness. It started out as a challenge. Now, it's second nature. In class they focus on positive language and thoughts.

In addition, they're working on projects for outside the classroom. Students make quilts for children going through chemotherapy, write encouraging notes to pass out to strangers and research opportunities to help others in the community.

The class is working on an end of the semester project. It's the academy lemonade drive, organized through Alex's lemonade stand, to raise money for children cancer research.

It will be the end to a semester of transformation. The lemonade drive is May 6 from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. at Arvin High School, located at 900 Varsity Road in Arvin.
