Thirty sixth, seventh and eighth graders, nominated by at least two of their teachers for their exemplary leadership skills, met with the be nice. crew on Thursday to figure out how they can spread be nice. through their school and community. 

This group was full of strong and positive personalities who recognized the need for a change in the climate of their school. 

Stay tuned for information about a parent night where these selected students will be given an award for being strong role-models. The be nice. Leadership Group is also planning an exciting presentation to empower students, staff and the rest of the Grand Rapids Community to be nice.!
