Mysterious Rubber Ducks Sparking Joy at Iowa Elementary School

Someone has been dropping off rubber ducks to the school every day and the kids are loving it!

Someone’s been spreading kindness at this school in the form of rubber duckies.  The duckies are hidden around the elementary school every day since the start of the school year, and no one knows who.   They stopped counting after a while, but say it’s easily over 200 now.  The kids love it and the teachers are finding ways to incorporate it into their lessons.
