Nearly 50 teachers, police officers, firefighters and the mayor came together Monday morning, Jan. 23, to help Columbia Elementary School kick off the Great Kindness Challenge, an innovative bully prevention initiative in which students carry out as many kind acts as possible over the course of a week.

The challenge, which began with three schools in Carlsbad, California in 2012, has grown to cover more than five million students nationwide.
