Sandy Hook Promise, September 23-27, 2019 – News from the Kindness Crew Advisors and the Guidance Office
This year, WS is taking on a new initiative called the Sandy Hook Promise. This challenge is encouraging all students and faculty to start with a simple hello and help reach out to students who may be dealing with chronic social isolation. The mission of the Sandy Hook Promise is to create a culture engaged in preventing shootings, violence, and other harmful acts in schools. Sandy Hook Promise is a moderate, above-the-politics organization that supports sensible program and policy solutions that address the “human side” of gun violence by preventing individuals from ever getting to the point of picking up a firearm to hurt themselves or others. Their words, actions, and impact nationwide are intended to honor all victims of gun violence by turning tragedy into a moment of transformation. WS will be joining this program this year and have planned a variety of small initiatives next week. WS will be incorporating activities with a warm greeting in the morning, games at recess, an opportunity to sit with different friends and meet someone new at lunch, lessons in class, and wearing green to support the Sandy Hook Promise on Friday! Our goal is to unite our students, spread kindness, and challenge our kids to include everyone.
