Prestwick: The Kindness Challenge of 2018

The Kindness challenge at Prestwick

Prestwick STEM Academy students are participating in the Kindness Challenge of 2018. During the week, these students are being creative as they find ways to connect with one another, show tolerance and create a culture of kindness. "We kicked off our first annual "Mix It Up Wednesday" during middle school lunches," said Christine Gibson, Prestwick principal. Students were given random numbers and sat at corresponding tables with "new to them" peers. "Each table had fun questions that could serve as conversation starters, such as where they would go in a zombie apocalypse as well as if they would rather walk through a pit of snakes or scorpions," said Gibson. "In addition, students could brainstorm something they might all have in common and talk about it." 


Media Specialist Ronna Wyse and Counselor Sandy Burrell planned for this event. The purpose was to give students this lunch time to be "unplugged" (aka - technology free) so they could have some time to focus on one another and get to know people they don't normally sit with. 


"After some warm-up time, it was great to see smiles and laughs from all our participants," said Gibson.
