The Magnolia School District has a districtwide theme of practicing "Unlimited Acts of Kindness." The students at Lord Baden-Powell students took this initiative a step further by focusing on a quote from Dr. Wayne Dyer…”When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.” "Choose Kind" became the new school mantra. Students began selling “Kindness Grams” and "Choose Kind" shirts to raise money for the new wheelchair. The students sold almost 250 shirts in the first month alone. The students raised close to $2,000.
By the end of the campaign, the students had raised enough money to purchase the all-terrain wheelchair. During this year’s outdoor science school trip, the students decided to donate the all-terrain wheelchair so that not only the student from Lord Baden-Powell School could use it, but any student from any school attending camp would have access to it. Thanks to these kind and considerate students, all students will now be able to enjoy the outdoor science school for years to come.
