Across the country more than 1,000 schools have accepted a challenge to be kind for a week, and nine of those schools are in Roseville.

During the "Great Kindness Challenge" schoolchildren are given a checklist of 50 acts of kindness to complete.

"So far, my favorite one is to give a kind handshake to greet a student because it's also nice to greet them in with a handshake and it's nice to see them smile," fifth-grader at Quail Glenn Elementary School Amelia said. 

She says only three acts remain on her checklist.

"We are always searching for systemic ways to combat bullying and research proves that if you have some systemic commitment to kindness and compassion at your campus, that's the best way to combat bullying," Quail Glenn principal Greg Omira said. 

Omira says the school will have an anti-bullying assembly to solidify the message, but for Alicia, Amelia's best friend, actions speak louder.

"Most of my friends are saying that, 'Oh my gosh, this is, like the best," she said.
