Unity Day- We stand against bullying

Second graders pledge to be kind

Students in Mrs. Coughlin's class wore orange to stand unified against bullying.

On Wednesday, October 19, 2022 District 123 schools joined together to unite for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.  Students wore the color orange to send a visible message that no child should ever experience bullying.  Research shows that more than one out of every five students will be bullied in school this year (  At Hometown school, students pledged this week to support others, treat others with kindness, be more accepting of people's differences and help include those who feel left out.  Students did activities in the classroom this week to help spread kindness such as reading stories about kindness, drawing pictures of kind acts and use role play to help show ways to be kind.  At Hometown School it is Cool to be Kind!
