AES celebrates kindness

By TARA GARNER, Acquinton Elementary School


At Acquinton Elementary School, the impacts of bullying are addressed throughout the year with guidance lessons, class meetings, positive behavioral interventions and supports, and in everyday lessons and interactions with students.

Each morning, students listen to "words of wisdom" addressing the importance of respecting differences and building healthy relationships.

To further instill the importance of creating a positive school culture that is free from bullying, Acquinton students promoted kindness during a "no-name-calling week" in January.
