LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Students at Lowe Elementary School made Wednesday a "Kindness Day."

The day started with a "kindness pledge" at 9 a.m. Lessons also focused on nice words and good deeds. 

On a national day of action, teachers looked for ways to explain the movement to the youngest students.

"I think that's a parent issue -- to talk about those sensitive issues -- so that's why I try to focus everything just on the kindness aspect, and how they treat each other," said Tymna Oberhausen, a teacher, adding that, "this is our community" and "we care about each other and we take care of each other."

The school also launched the "Love Lowe" campaign on Valentine's Day, promoting random acts of kindness.
