GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. -- While many kids spend their summers relaxing with friends, one Summerfield Elementary School student stepped up her game to make sure every kid has what they need for the big return to school.

Student Peyton Basnight created a way to inspire and support others - by collecting school supplies for kids that can't afford them.

"I think that everybody needs to know that somebody cares about them," she said, "and I think that even if you don't know that, that you can learn that somebody does care about you. That's part of the reason I created this."

While she was working to help others, Riley Schoppa, a student at Weaver Academy, created an app for Basnight's 'Caring Cookie Club.' One safely designed specifically for elementary-aged students.

"You can post nice things about each other and encourage them," he said. "This is your profile page, and you have your profile picture. You can have like a little bio of whatever you want to do."

This is an example of What's Right With Our Schools.
