Friday, January 15, was not your typical school day at Schmucker Middle School. When students opened their lockers at the start of the day, each found a small handwritten note inside, placed there to surprise and inspire. Nearly 1,000 notes had been created and placed the night before by students and staff on a mission to carry out Project To Be Kind. The schoolwide effect was obvious: smiles, laughter, chatter, gratitude.
Project To Be Kind encourages both random and deliberate acts of kindness, whether aimed at making a difference for one person or lifting morale throughout the building.
ABC57 News “captured the kindness” in coverage that aired on Jan. 20. You can watch video of journalist Brandon Pope’s story here. And check out #tbksms for more photos and comments.
