Recently, a group of R-PHS student leaders from the Kindness Campaign (a.k.a., “Set Kindness Free at R-P”) traveled to the middle school to share the idea of nurturing kindness by signing a pledge to be kind to others.
Mrs. Jennifer Anderson, Assistant Principal at R-PHS shared her thoughts about the trip to the middle school, “The coordinated efforts between student leadership at the high school and middle school definitely made the kickoff of the Kindness Campaign a success at the middle school. It was exciting to see students setting the tone for a positive culture in Rocket City. What is most important is that the commitments students made in the pledge are something they can carry with them to the high school, college, the workplace, and every other corner of their communities. I feel honored and inspired to work with such amazing students. ”
R-PHS junior, Sarah DeYoung shared her experience by commenting, “Going to the middle school with the Kindness Campaign was a very humbling experience. I enjoyed being able to interact with the middle school students and help them understand the importance of being kind to all people you encounter. They were very interested in learning about signing the pledge. It was awesome to be a part of that!”
Freshman Nate Veihl summed up his experience by stating, “The opportunity to go to the middle school was an amazing experience to help others understand the importance of spreading kindness.”
