Spreading Kindness One Locker at a Time

September 13, 2017

Spreading Kindness One Locker at a Time 001 The lockers of Wisdom Lane Middle School received a pop of color on Sept. 6 as seventh-graders Annina Saccomanno and Nabiha Khan stuck more than 250 inspirational quotes and messages to the lockers of their peers.

The students thought of the Pay it Forward idea over the summer and researched different quotes and messages that they could use. They then typed them up and placed them on colorful construction paper. The girls arrived early on the first day of school to post the messages and words of encouragement throughout the hallways.

"We thought it would be a really nice thing to do because a lot of people are really nervous about starting school," said Saccomanno.

"We wanted to do something to give inspiration and motivation to start the year on a positive note," said Khan.

The act of kindness did not go unnoticed as students and faculty members throughout the building were pleasantly surprised at the gesture. Principal John Avena reported that many students and faculty members approached him asking who was responsible for the good deed.

"I have never seen so many people, whether it be staff or students, come to me asking who did that," said Avena. "The act of kindness was incredible. You could see as the students were reading the messages that it put a smile on their faces."

Avena hopes to expand on the idea and make it a tradition for the start of each school year with one of the school's clubs taking on the project.
