Superintendent Clay's visit to The Be Kind Project and the Center for Academic Success - Douglas!

The Center For Academic Success (CAS) Douglas is another AWESOME "Be Kind" school in Cochise County. I had the pleasure of visiting Pueblo Del Sol of SVPS and CAS-Douglas to celebrate our Be Kind initiative with the Be Kind Crew. Cochise County is a "Be Kind" county and proud of it! <3

Students want and need genuine positivity, receiving the message of respectfulness within the classroom and through collaborative organizations is a plus. The Be Kind Project "sings the same positive song" that our educators sing while helping students to encourage each other by being supportive, considerate, and helpful. Watch The Be Kind Project crew was fun, interactive, and displayed the power of interdependency."
