Word of the Week – “Kindness!”

If you’ve been keeping up with our Keys 2 Life check-ins, you’ll know that last week’s “Word of the Week” was confidence. This week – it’s kindness! 💙⁣

We acted on this by having all of our students and counselors go around and write random and anonymous kind words to their peers. ⁣

At the end of the day, we had everyone look at all the kind things said to them, so now those kinds words can be used towards others for the rest of their time at Keys 2 Life! ⁣

Let’s all spread a little kindness today, make someone’s day in the comments below! ✨
