Thursday, January 31st, 2019 La Petite Academy Honors Its First Kindness Star

Congratulations to Akshaya Jagdish, the winner of La Petite Academy’s first Kindness Star Contest. This week, La Petite Academy in San Diego hosted a school-wide celebration to honor Akshaya for her efforts to help raise awareness of Alzheimer’s.

Children at our schools love to do good deeds and lend a hand to friends and neighbors. As part of our Season of Kindness, we asked our school families to submit videos featuring their children explaining what makes them a Kindness Star. Our Facebook followers voted for their favorite submissions.

With 856 votes, 4-year-old Akshaya claimed the grand prize, an educational scholarship valued at $2,000. In addition, we have donated $2,000 to the winner’s charity of choice, the Alzheimer’s Association – San Diego/Imperial Chapter.

Thanks to everyone who sent us submissions – we are so proud of each of our students and the amazing ways they give back to our communities!
