“Kids set up happiness hotline”
A fifth-grade class in Indiana is aiming to spread a little happiness with a special hotline meant to cheer you up.
Cheryl Can Laeken, who teaches fifth grade at Milford School, said: “The world is really chaotic, it’s kind of dark.”
“I teach my kids to be positive and do good things for other people and this just seems like a really easy way to get my kids thinking about others.”
The phone line offers five different options in English and Spanish, including jokes, advice and inspirational quotes.
There’s also a feature for callers who simply want to get a taste of fifth-grade education.
“The pupils read some random facts that fifth-graders should know,” the teacher said.
