The Kindness Revolution™

Youngs Grove students and faculty are spreading kindness throughout the school and community! Faculty members recognize students with a kindness wristband whenIzzy they show kindness to others. Students, in turn, pass along their wristbands when they see others showing kindness. As a Community Champion of The Kindness Revolution™, State Farm Insurance Agent Jeff Truitt sponsors the program at Youngs Grove. All students and teachers who receive a kindness bracelet are entered into a drawing for the Kind Student and Teacher of the Month.
