Making Kindness Matter

Kindness has always been a concept embraced by WMS, but through Rachel's Kindness Matters, we have now embraced this movement with a new club and drive at our school.  The Samaritans365 Kindness Matters program began in 2007 by a woman named Laura Reiss.  Laura was inspired to teach her children to give back and to live their lives under the values of compassion, gratitude, and kindness.  Rachel Lucenius, a student at Weddington High School, also shared these values.  After her tragic death, the Weddington school community has chosen to remember her by continuing to spread kindness.  To support Rachel's Kindness Matters at WMS, students can purchase special shirts that can be worn the last Friday of each month.  Shirts can be purchsed through the PTSO HERE until September 14.
