Hennessey Heroes Take the Pledge!!
Hennessey students and staff are partnering with Hasbro on the Be Fearless Be Kind initiative this year. This initiative is a program that empowers students to include others and stand up for others. This initiative began with an assembly and guest speaker who shared the program with the students. They watched a video made by students on what it means to be fearless and kind. Then, students did a self-reflection and wrote or drew what they would stand for. Lastly, students came together to say the pledge aloud as a school community. All students received a Be Fearless Be Kind bracelet to remind themselves of the pledge they took. Each month there will be an activity that the school community will complete to continue the program. When asked what it means to be fearless and kind, 4th grader Ava says, “You are not afraid to go up to someone and say hi and give them a compliment. “ Cameron, 4th grader, thinks it’s important to be fearless and kind because you can make someone’s day and it’s important for the school so that our school can stay nice.” Cameron says she wears the bracelet as, “a reminder to be fearless and kind and helps her when she is upset.” It’s a great time to be a Hennessey Hero!!!
