BOISE — Boise School District is kicking off their kindness initiative for the school year with a kindness carnival.

More than 350 students from Boise schools are heading to Camel's Back Park for the carnival. Boise School District says it is a way to get to know other students and be more inclusive. Students throughout the week will also be making “pay-it-forward” cards and talking about kindness inside their classes.

"You know, as a society, nationwide and worldwide, we’re really good about digital communication now with our devices, one thing we probably need to improve on is that face-to-face communication, and that certainly will be a focus tomorrow," said spokesperson for Boise School District Dan Hollar.

The event begins around 12:45 at Boise High School and students will head over to the park around 1:30 pm. Boise School District says they're helping other schools and districts put together their own carnivals as well.
