Train to the North Pole

Kindergartners at Chestnut Street School earned a ticket to see “The Polar Express” by performing acts of kindness throughout December.

To gain entrance to the movie, the students had to present a golden “believe” ticket, which they could earn by completing acts of kindness. Eager to take part, they demonstrated their kindness by pushing in classmates’ chairs, thanking Chestnut Street staff members for all they do, and helping fellow students clean up and pack their bookbags at the end of the day, among other benevolent gestures.

The generous acts paid off on Dec. 22, when the children wore their pajamas to school and redeemed their tickets to watch the popular animated film in the school’s gymnasium.
