Test 16

Why the change? Better/Worse and Why.


Starting TODAY the students and advisors of Friday Night Live are asking you to take place in our No Place for Hate initiative by passing out one chain/slip to each student and asking them to write something positive. This can be a shout out to another student, a positive quote, a compliment, or anything else positive. Students have the option to include their name on the slip or leave it anonymous.
Once students have completed their slip, please collect them and return them to me either via your T.A. or by leaving them in my box.  We'll be creating the chain in FNL and hanging it for all to see in the MPR, so the more chains you and your students make, the better!!!

We will be collecting chains until Friday, February 20. If you would like more chains, please let me know; I am happy to give you more chains to spread the positivity.
