We helped high school staff spread positivity to students during, “Glad You’re Here” week. The goal was to help students feel cared for by the adults in their school. We bought candies and stapled positive affirmations to them and passed them to students as they walked into school. We also made a sticky note wall that spelled out “KIND” in big letters where students and staff wrote positive, encouraging, and kind notes to themselves and others. We sponsored the purchase of, “Glad You’re Here” t-shirts for every staff member to wear. It made me feel really proud to see smiles on the students’ faces and to know that I made a difference in their lives, especially after the recent summer deaths of several youth in our community. I hope they felt cared for and had a stronger will to push forward.
