17 Acts of Kindness
Posted on 01/22/2019

The School District of Palm Beach County is honoring the 17 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School victims by encouraging students, staff and the community to engage in 17 Acts of Kindness leading up to February 14.

The acts of kindness, which begin on January 29, are appropriate for children and adults to make simple gestures to unify the community and show gratitude, respect, and love.

The School District has suggested acts of kindness, such as sending a classmate an uplifting note, collecting books or school supplies to donate to a classroom, thanking a police officer, leading a campus clean-up or even just paying a compliment to someone.

Participants may share their acts of kindness on social media using the hashtag #StrongerTogether and #17ActsofKindness.

In addition to the acts of kindness, Fulton-Holland Educational Services Center and high schools across the School District will also have a commemorative Crepe Myrtle tree planted on their campuses. The trees represent living tributes to the victims.

The District’s commemoration efforts are supported by our business partners: New York Life, Home Depot, Rapids Water Park and Malt & Co.
