Why promote Kindness and Compassion? In Grand Prairie ISD, counselors and/or social workers supervise the Stand4Kind initiative as a method to prevent bullying in our schools and to foster empathy in our students. The student and staff members of the Stand4Kind Kindness Crew Clubs at each campus sponsor kindness and compassion events to encourage students to become emotionally connected and to cultivate respect for others.
Stand4Kind Kindness Crew Clubs Every campus in Grand Prairie ISD has established a Kindness Crew at the elementary and secondary level.
