    Second-graders from Morse walked through The Peabody Preserve in Sleepy Hollow placing small rocks that they had painted around the property. Each kindness rock included a design and a word that sends a positive message. Teacher Brenda Sutherland and Art Teacher Jeannette Dietz brought the national movement to the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns. #TheKindnessRocks Project began when a woman whose parents died left rocks on a beach to bring comfort to others. The idea has spread to schools, hospitals, and playgrounds.
