Daily Herald report

Monday marked World Kindness Day, and students at Field Elementary School in Wheeling did their part by paying a surprise visit to London Middle School to put up cheerful signs and Post-it notes.

Wearing "Be Kind" T-shirts, the Field fourth-graders crossed Dundee Road to visit nearby London, where they will attend grades 6-8. A few London students were in on the surprise and helped the younger Field students as they moved around the building to attach colorful signs and notes to lockers and on walls.

The Field students have been doing a weekly kindness challenge all school year. To see a snapshot of what else they've done, look for #fieldkindness on Twitter.
