‘You Can Sit With Us’

Posted: 5/7/2015

While talking about kindness during class, 13 eighth grade girls discussed bullying and ways they could make an impact. They decided they would always stand up against bullying and wanted to take further action. From this discussion, the idea of raising money for a bullying prevention organization with a T-shirt sale was born. Each week, the girls spent time during class to create the shirt. As a group, they decided on the slogan “You can sit with us,” with a peace sign on the back. Each girl shared a word that described kindness, which was placed within the peace sign. Words included: strong, brave, confident, inviting, optimistic and supportive. Every week, the girls continued to discuss bullying and kindness, searching for new ways to improve their community. They will be selling the shirts during lunch hour and hope to see every student at their school wearing this message of kindness!
