Students and staff at Attleboro High School are honoring the 26 victims of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Conn., by doing 26 acts of kindness.

These acts range from holding the door to just saying hello.

"The little things that we can do that make a big impact on someone's day," said Kelly Reed.

Reed, an English teacher at the high school, started the initiative to mark the one year anniversary of the shooting.  She has a friend who works at Sandy Hook and grew up in the community over from Newtown.

"It's been a difficult process for the community trying to figure out a way to move from this while honoring the people who were lost," said Reed.

"I put the word out via email, Facebook and Twitter and it started to take off from there," said Attleboro High School Principal Bill Runey.

The movement has it's own Twitter hash tag #26actsahs.

"There was someone going around giving a bunch of high fives today to everyone, like I heard someone telling everyone have a good day in the hall," said one student.

"I think it's a good thing to get everyone together and just be nice to everybody," said student Brian Letourneau.

Reed says no act is too small.
