Our Intermediate Character Council collaborated to create this video in honor of No Name Calling Week. Our words mean something, so we need to choose them wisely. Just remember, while this is a week we raise awareness about the power of our words to help or hurt, it’s also a message that applies to us every single day. So, what do YOU stand for?
Special thanks to Zach, Maddy, Emily, and Ashton for their brainstorming, creativity, video skills, and hard work!
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday time with your family. See you next year!
