World Kindness Day at Hicksville Middle School

World Kindness Day at Hicksville Middle School
Posted on 11/23/2021

The Hicksville Middle Schools students pledged to be kind.   This project was offered in Health Classes led by their Health Education Teacher, Anthony Tussie.  Students not currently enrolled in health classes this year were encouraged to still participate by visiting the main office for their cutout person to add to the Wall of Kindness bulletin board. Students were asked to complete a person with their name and had the option of adding a phrase of choice pledging to be kind in this world to others. 

Principal, Mara Jorisch, shared that when students pledge to be kind it positively impacts all of  their future choices, actions, and interactions with each other. Principal Jorisch contributed her own special message to the Wall of Kindness, which read, “be the smile in someone’s day”. 

The wall was filled with messages and positivity in celebration of World Kindness Day. One student wrote, “in a world where you can be anything, be kind.” A few others wrote, “no act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted” by AESOP. One additional student wrote the important words to all to remember, “you are important”.  Students not only contributed to the wall, but were also seen reading and enjoying their peers’ words of wisdom.  Hicksville Middle School students joined in unity to pledge kindness for World Kindness Day in a global celebration that promotes the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world with the purpose of helping everyone understand that compassion for others is what binds us all together.
