The Triton Regional School District will culminate a year focused on kindness with a Kindness Rocks event on Tuesday from 6:15 to 8 p.m. in the high school auditorium.

The event, sponsored by the PTAs, will reflect the spirit of kindness that unites the district. Attendees are encouraged to create kindness rocks (rocks that are decorated and include kind, inspirational words), which will be brought back and “installed” in a special location at each of the district schools.

Other sponsors include Essex County Asset Builder Network, Martignetti Enterprises Inc. and Lowe’s Home Improvement. Learn more at www.facebook.com/events/429784121103540/.
