Parents of 5th graders in Mary Moore Elementary, Arlington, Texas, have been planning for weeks how to spread kindness, love, and positivity through their campus. And after the horrific Parkland shooting massacre, this idea seemed as relevant as ever.
These days, children face too much negativity on social media. And when something devastating happens, little things can make a big difference. So, a group of parents have come together to make the school of their children a happier place.
Spreading kindness by painting
To positively encourage students, 5th-grade mothers spent 37 hours over the weekend, painting bathrooms! They had pretty much work to do: they needed to sand down the surface, paint everything black, and then make their own drawings.
Luckily, they had almost everything needed for the project. A few companies, such as Home Depot and Sherwin-Williams, donated the paint and supplies.
Just imagine the 5th graders’ surprise and shock when they came back to school! They must be very proud of their parents.
After sharing the snaps of bathrooms on social media, the parents received positive reactions from people all over the country. And they plan to continue spreading messages of encouragement and kindness!
If you want to start something similar in your child’s or grandchild’s school, Mary Moore Elementary mothers also shared detailed instructions on how they painted their school. You can find the link in this Facebook post.
We’re very sure that such an act of kindness will inspire others to do the same.
