Students, staff raise awareness about kindness with “Words Matter” t-shirts
Words matter. That was the message in classrooms, throughout hallways and printed on t-shirts Sept. 6 at Newburg Midde School. To help spread a message about kindness and people taking a kinder, most positive approach to their everyday lives, Newburg made a unified statement that “Words Matter,” with every student and staff member at the school wearing a bright yellow t-shirt featuring that message.
"Academics are important, but what's just as important is making sure we foster kids who are kind and use positive words," Newburg principal Nicole Adell said. "That's the big picture."
