The power of kindness is awe-inspiring. It can make someone’s day; it can even save a life. Years from now, people may not remember specifically what you said or did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.
Unfortunately, we have all been in situations where we have been treated unkindly and know the bitter sting it can leave. Unkindness occurs in many environments, including our school district. In fact, time is spent each day working through situations where people have acted unkindly toward others, which takes away from our dedicated learning time.
In an effort to counter this trend, the Johnston Community School District is leading a new campaign urging everyone to be kind. Join us over the next 12 weeks as we talk with people throughout our community on why it’s so important to be kind and how detrimental it can be when we aren’t. Then, see the efforts of our students, parents, teachers and others as we work to spread kindness.
