Feb. 1, 2017 - MES students throw kindness like confetti
Since 2004, schools throughout the nation have celebrated “No Name Calling Week” in January. The movement, inspired by a teen novel called, “The Misfits,” aims to end name-calling and bullying through activities and dialogue.
At Montgomery Elementary School, students celebrated the week by creating a wall display entitled: “Throw Kindness Like Confetti.” With a generous donation of post-it notes from the Staples Distribution Center in Montgomery, each grade level was assigned a different color and students wrote words of kindness or their own definition of kindness on the notes. They then were asked to stick the notes to the wall, creating a colorful reminder to the entire school community to be kind.
