Bullying can have lasting, lifetime implications. Sometimes, all a person needs to hear is something uplifting and positive to get through a rough day. So, on Friday, we (hopefully YOU) are going to spread kindness by covering the sidewalks of WMHS with positive words, phrases, quotes and images that speak of love, peace, hope and acceptance with the intention of bringing smiles to faces who need it the most. Students will be welcomed outside during club and lunch time to help create this beautiful collage of acceptance.
