In conjunction with National School Counseling Week, Lutheran Counseling Services School Counselors led a program to highlight the importance of kindness. The program, entitled #WordsMatter, helped children from Kindergarten to 12th grade to understand how their words can make a difference in the world around them. Students discussed how they can light up their world by spreading kindness and were called to chose ways to do so. They were given flashlight pens to help them remember their commitment to kindness. To cap off the program, counselors shared spoken word videos by Tanner Olsen and challenged students to create a spoken word video of their own to highlight how their #WordsMatter and to enter our contest to win prizes while spreading an important message! Share how you think #WordsMatter with a video of your own!
