A Great First Week

Posted on: September 1, 2013, 1:41 AM

We’ve kicked off the first week of school!!

Jenison Junior High has established a Leadership Chapter of be nice.! A group of 25 eighth graders that are determined to champion a change in their school and community this year met. Kick-off assembly coming soon!

Wingman from 105.3 HotFM joined us, and also MCd our assembly at St. John Vianney. We had a brave and engaging set of 7th and 8th graders who stepped forward and were the first to speak to why it is so important to take the be nice. pledge.


“We are a be nice.  school and we pledge to Notice, Invite, Challenge and Empower ourselves and others.”


Freshman starting this week at Grandville High received some be nice. advice, and EDUCATORS at Mona Shores, Knapp Charter, Collins Elementary, Jamestown Elementary, and the YMCA of greater Grand Rapids have heard the message and taken the pledge to be nice. and help our youth and community do so!


be nice. period. no excuses. no exceptions.


We’ll see you next week during another exciting kick-off week of school! It’s going to be a nice. year!
