Salk Students Acknowledge the Power of Kindness

October 12, 2017

Salk Students Acknowledge the Power of Kindness - image001In honor of Character Education Month, Jonas E. Salk Middle School's junior leaders in the school's Respect and Responsibility, Integrity, Safety, Staying Healthy and EmpathyProgram participated in a video conference program with HEC-TV on Oct. 5, which focused on the importance of kindness. In 2016, Salk Middle School was named a National School of Character for showcasing strong character development.

Serving as role models, junior leaders in R.I.S.E. consist of a select group of eighth-graders who were recommended by teachers for their leadership abilities and positive behavior. The students gathered in the school's library where they video chatted with experts and student groups from around the country on how acts of kindness and culture of kindness can improve quality of life for all.

The program was led by television personality Julie Tristan in St. Louis, Missouri and encouraged students to ask questions and contribute with their own ideas and comments throughout the program. Students shared common ways that people can intentionally be kind to others and spoke about the benefits of kindness and the relationship of bullying and lack of empathy for others.

School officials hope to incorporate this important lesson into a group discussion activity for the junior leaders to share with their peers in the building.
