Busted for Kindness!

Random Acts of Kindness Club

Educational Assistant Heide Devereaux recently busted freshmen Carson McDermott and Mason Emerich, and junior Tyler Gray for kindness. “These three young gentlemen have been spending most of their lunch time in our Life Skills classroom with our kids. This all started out as a challenge by their football coach, Dave Boak. As the months have gone by and football has passed, these three continue to visit our classroom on a daily basis, interacting and conversing with all the students in our class, whether they are verbal or not. Their kindness has had an enormous impact on our kids! One of the days, one of our students almost fell down and Tyler was the first person to rush to their aid. It was so amazing!”
Senior Riverview Youth Council officer Kelly Hall busted custodian Jean Rush for going above and beyond to support the RYC.
Mrs. Adams recently nominated Angelina Bruno for making the anti-suicide posters more visible by using inspirational words to draw a student’s attention to them. Thanks for being kind and helping bring attention to the school’s anti-suicide awareness program, Angelina!

Mrs. Aitken recently BUSTED Dawson Boldman and Andrea Gonzalez Lopez for kindness for cleaning all her student’s desks. Thanks for keeping CHS clean and kind, Dawson and Andrea!

Custodian Suzanne Walters recently BUSTED a CHS student for kindness. “I caught Brent Wilkinson, who is a lighting technician in the theatre being kind. He asked if we (custodians) need help putting the tables away that were left sitting out in the commons.” Thanks for being helpful and kind, Brent.

Chris Lasserre has just been BUSTED for kindness by math teacher Kathy Briscoe. “He has been an amazing peer tutor to students in our Geometry class. He is very patient and willing to explain concepts to other students in a way they understand. He is awesome!”  Thanks for being helpful and kind, Chris!

Madame Pamela Parks mentioned that her markers had seen better days and Jack came to class the next day with a gallon-sized freezer bag stuffed full of markers. Thanks for making CHS more kind, and colorful, Jack.

Recently Mr. Grayson busted sophomore Liz Morris for kindness.  “She was extremely kind in helping a fellow classmate understand an article to prepare for a Socratic seminar.”  Like many students who have been busted for kindness, Liz said, “It was really no big deal.”  Any type of kindness is a big deal, Liz.  Thanks for sharing kindness at CHS!

Recently a senior English class was asked which staff member they would like to see recognized for kindness and the winner was CHS custodian, Mr. James Oviatt. Ivan Olvera said, “Mr. Oviatt always makes sure we eat in a clean lunch room.”  Kylee Marsh noted, “Mr. Oviatt always helps so much with a smile even when it is an unbearable mess.”  Aidan Totten said, “Mr. Oviatt keeps a positive attitude the whole way through the day.”  Thanks James, for being am example of kindness for CHS!


Recently Ms. Blooming busted junior Nash McCloskey for kindness.  She needed help unpacking and organizing all the office supplies for the English Department. She said, “In one block period, he unboxed several heavy boxes of supplies, and with very little instruction from me, and delivered specific items to several teachers all around the school.  He then proceeded to re-organize our entire Language Arts supply cabinet without being asked! He did this all quietly and unobtrusively while I was teaching.  I had never met Nash before, but I’m glad I got to meet him today.”
