Kindness at Moseley
This is what kindness looks like in action at Moseley Elementary. After one student had become upset about something, another student asked him to sit with him and share his book even though they did not know each other well. Ms. Green, our school counselor, has been teaching and modeling lessons about kindness to the entire school, and it's paying off.

Bully Talk at Garner
Dr. Judy Flury from All Star Kids Karate talked to all 1,000 students at GFAA about bullying. She covered reporting vs. tattling, what to do if you're being bullied, and ways we can be kind to one another. Thank you, Dr. Flury.

Gearing Up for Red Ribbon Week
Sallye Moore College and Career Prep Academy's 6th graders, with help from the art teacher Mrs. Leslie Desmarais and the counselor Mrs. Shannon Neal, created a wall mural to show the students' dedication to this year's theme: "Your Future is Key, so Stay Drug Free."
