New tradition begins for Eastview homecoming

Throughout homecoming week, Oct. 7-12, at Eastview High School, the royalty court will lead the student body and the community in the school’s first Eastview Kindness Campaign.

Students will be encouraged to perform random acts of kindness throughout their daily lives, sharing pictures and descriptions of their positivity on Twitter and the Kindness Board in the EHVS Commons. The point is not to seek credit for these acts, but to inspire others to join in the revolution.

They will categorize their acts using hashtags (#EVHS9, #EVHS10, #EVHS11, #EVHS12, #EVHSAlumni, #EVHSFaculty, #EVHSCommunity) in a friendly competition between grades. The class achieving the highest kindness rating (based on volume of acts completed) will be the recipient of the Eastview Kindness Cup (a 3-foot trophy that will be awarded at the homecoming pep fest on Thursday, Oct. 10). The Kindness Cup will be a traveling trophy that will be awarded each year during homecoming week.

The school is seeking sponsors to support the campaign. The goal is to raise $2,000 for the Eastview Community Foundation. Local businesses can participate in the Kindness Campaign by donating $1 per random act (up to a designated amount, determined by the organization), or by simply making a set donation.
