World Kindness Day | 11/13
Our ASB kids placed kindness mirrors around campus on Wednesday in honor of World Kindness Day (November 13th). Students took a pic, tagged ASB on social media, and were entered in a raffle.
Redeemable prizes included:
- Discounts on WHS merch
- A free vintage spirit shirt
- Free snacks/drinks from the ASB store
- Free tickets to a game or play
… and more!
The purpose of World Kindness Day, as outlined by the World Kindness Movement, is “to highlight good deeds in the community focusing on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us.” As we hit the home stretch of the semester, we want to take a moment to recognize kindness, connection, empathy, and coming together as a family.

Only behaviors befitting the learning environment are acceptable. Students are to comply with all reasonable requests of any staff member. Dress code will be enforced.
Please remember that attendance counts, every period, every day. Students will be marked absent if they are not at the beginning of each period to verify their attendance.
