MV MIDDLE SCHOOL CHOOSES KINDNESS

Posted September 14 at 3:13pm

On the first day of school, faculty and staff at the middle school had an important message for students that was not to be missed. They wore that message printed in bright colors on black T-shirts, and, just in case students were too distracted meeting old friends and finding their way around the school, these words were shared with the morning announcements:

 

“Last night, or even this morning, maybe the most important choice you made was what you would wear today. As you may have seen when you entered into the building, many of our faculty and staff are wearing a T-shirt with a simple message: ‘Choose Kindness.’"
