    kind·ness - noun: the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.
    Kindness is a behavior marked by a pleasant disposition and concern and consideration for others. It is considered a virtue and is recognized as a value in all cultures.


    Sometimes it is easy to feel like the world is getting harder, but if we look closer: on the web, in our families, neighborhoods, and classrooms, you will find empathy, compassion, and respect. Every day we hear new stories of people trying to make the world a better place. 

    In Grand Prairie ISD, school counselors and social workers work directly with students to prevent bullying in schools, foster empathy, and good decision-making skills in students and facilitate a global perspective through community-based outreach. Be Kind Grand Prairie ISD is a multi-faceted initiative that encourages students, staff, and community members to become emotionally connected and to cultivate respect for others. This is a commitment to change the culture of our schools and community by promoting kindness and compassion. It is our hope that the lessons shared by school counselors and social workers can spark a movement that makes the world a little bit kinder for all of us. 

     

    Being kind often requires courage. Grow with us as we explore intentional acts of kindness.

    Practice Kindness: Give honest compliments, celebrate someone you love, send an email thanking someone, tell someone how special they are to you, help a neighbor with yard work or food, open a door, listen, and refuse to gossip.

    Kindness is a willingness to full-heartedly celebrate someone else's successes.
    Kindness is also about telling the truth in a gentle way when doing so is helpful to the other person.
    Kindness includes being kind to yourself. Do you speak gently and kindly to yourself and take good care of yourself?


    Every month, the Be Kind Grand Prairie ISD campaign will focus on a theme that corresponds to the work being done in schools to teach students about kindness.
    The theme for September is Be Kind: Online.
