In an effort to enhance WSISD’s anti-bullying and anti-cyberbullying efforts, the district will kick off a year-long Choose Kind Campaign on Oct. 1 that will encourage students, staff and the community to treat others with respect and kindness.
Inspired by the book “Wonder” about Auggie, a fifth grader who suffers from a severely deformed face and does his best to be just an ordinary kid with an extraordinary face, the Choose Kind initiative is being used in school districts throughout the nation as a way to encourage young readers to share their stories and to introduce the Choose Kind theme into schools.
WSISD is fortunate because we have our very own Wonder kid, Logan Brown, who has a craniofacial diagnosis called Apert. Logan has attended the Fine Arts Academy throughout his school career and is now a seventh grader at Brewer Middle School.
The Choose Kind Campaign will not only teach our kids how to be kind in every situation, but it will also educate our kids and the community about the Children’s Craniofacial Association. It is our desire that our community would join us in the Choose Kind Campaign.
