Hi there! It’s Lexi! So, the last post was when a whole bunch of people worked really hard to make BE KIND signs- we had my brother’s volleyball team come over and help paint signs and my cousins and friends and other parents and family!
The reason is because 9/11/ is important to my family so in remembrance and service for the people who served during the tragic time for any family that had a family member that served as a firefighter,police,and etc. I want to take you back to 9/11/2019 last Wednesday. There were 5 very large 4 foot by eight foot signs that went to 4 schools! The signs went to 2 elementary schools, my middle school, and both my brother’s high school- the west campus and main campus! The principals of the schools are AWESOME!! They get it! They know that it’s really important! Students had the chance to sign their names and pledge to BE KIND. During our lunch time the whole school signed the big BE KIND signs. Guess what? Our friend, Miss Gini the person who started the BE KIND signs came to my school to help us pass out the BE KIND signs that were smaller. It was so special having her there!. There were so many people who donated materials like paint, lumber, markers, rollers, drop cloths! There were so many people who went to our schools to help out! There were so many people who made the day special! Our friend Mr. Thompson from the news and Mr. Chris (the camera man) came to our school to help spread that KIND IS COOL It is a day I will never forget! I hope it is a day no one EVER forgets! Wouldn’t it be so cool if every year on 9/11, we all work really hard to do something in honor of the brave people of 9/11? Wait a second, wouldn’t it be cool if we worked really hard to be kind EVERY day?!?! Remember, KIND IS COOL!!

So…we are back at school! And, that means the Kind Kids Club is back in action. And, boy are we starting out big. This Wednesday we are spreading the kindness through signs at school. Not just any signs, but signs made with love with materials donated by caring people from the community (thank you to all those who donated, you are making the world a nicer place!)
Over the weekend we had a group of people come together (students, parents, teachers) to make signs that we are able to pass out on 9/11. It was very encouraging to see other people doing kind things and helping out with a big project. We were able to work together and make 300 signs (whoa, that’s a lot of signs!!), plus 5 large signs to be delivered to schools in our area.
The plan is for the large signs to be signed by kids during their lunch period, and these signs will be displayed all year as a reminder to stay kind and treat people the way you would want to be treated. Please take a look at the pics to see the fun we had making our signs! And, maybe you could make some signs to pass out too!!
Hi everyone! Wow, do I have lots to tell you all. 🙂 You know how there are just some weekends that you will remember forever?! I definitely had one!!!! It has been so amazing to see all of the kindness!!
In the picture is my new friend, Ms. Gini, my Mom, brother, Aunt, Nana, Gigi, and my cousins.
I want to say a big THANK YOU to Ms. Stacie and Ms. Beth for sharing their BE KIND signs with me and for telling me about our new friend, Ms. Gini. It’s because of their kindness that I got to meet Ms. Gini. She started the BE KIND signs. We even had a chance to have lunch with her and get to know her. She is so KIND!! Really KIND!! Ms. Gini even invited us to her house to paint some signs! Here is the cool part – she gave us lots of signs to pass out! That is what we have been doing!
This is Mr. Thompson. He is the super nice t.v. man who came to our school to do a story on The Kind Kids Club Soles for Souls shoe drive. We had been wanting to give him a thank you gift and card and now we were able to give him a BE KIND sign, too!
When we were eating lunch with Ms. Gini we started to talk about some ideas that we have for school kindness projects for this year. Well, it’s so cool to see when people share their ideas how we can make one really huge idea that is all about KINDNESS!!!!
I’ll give you a hint in these pictures. See ALL of this wood???
Wondering what we are going to do with it??? We will tell you soon! 🙂 Thanks Ms. Gini for the wood!
REMEMBER, KIND IS COOL!
Hi! It’s Lexi! Want to know something I absolutely love? Family time and exploring new things!!!!! I was able to enjoy both of those things this weekend. We went to WINTERGREEN with my parents, sister, brothers, grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins!!!!! Me and my cousin even Face-Timed each other what we wanted to pack because on Sunday we were heading off to our first POLO match. I have NEVER been to one of those before and was super excited!! We went hiking, swimming, and exploring on Sat.
On Sunday, it was our chance to get dressed up. #kingfamilyvineyards. It was so cool to see the horses and the “chukkers.” I learned that is what you call the people on the horses playing the game. Everyone was so nice! Me and my cousin were asked to participate in the half-time game that was called the horse hopping contest. We got to go on a blow up horse and hop to the finish line! We didn’t win the free shirt and hat, but sure did have fun!
Here is the great news!!! My Mom and Dad saw a couple of people sitting near us watching the match. In their tent, they had BE KIND signs hanging from their tent. My mom went with me over to their tent and we started talking to them about their plaques and the Kind Kid Club. We found out that Ms. Beth went to the same elementary school, middle, and even high school as me and my brothers!!!! That is AWESOME!! Ms. Stacey told us that a lady started making the signs to pass out near where I live. I hope to meet her one day! Ms. Stacey and Ms. Beth make these and pass out to people they meet. That is so cool!
Ms. Stacey and Ms. Beth told me that people can make these signs and pass them on and inside of the big hearts people sign their initials and give them away. They said I can talk to my art teacher and see if we can maybe do the Be Kind art project at school. This is a great project for YOUR school, too! Ms. Stacey and Ms. Beth were so nice and kind! Thank you both for my Be Kind plaques And REMEMBER Kind is Cool!!!!!!!!!!
This is a picture of Dawn. Dawn saw a news article about our Kind Kid Challenge – Soles For Souls. She came all the way from Ashland (which is about 45 minutes away from our school) to drop shoes off! We did not get a chance to meet her because we were in class, but my mom did, and said she was super nice!

WOW!! It’s hard to believe how amazing our day at school went! We had an assembly for Soles for Souls. Ms. Stephanie Hathaway from the Soles4Souls organization came and spoke to the whole school (yep, everyone in the school!) about where the shoes are going.

Last week, we got to meet with the Superintendent, Dr. Daugherty, and School Board member, Mrs. Carrie Coyner. They came to see what was going on, and even brought in some shoes to donate. We have decided that 1000 shoes is not going to be enough. There are so many people we can help, so our new goal is 2000 pairs of shoes…yep, that’s right, we think we can get 2000 pairs. We are asking for help from the community, and can’t wait to see what happens. We have learned that people love to help if given the chance. If you want to see how the visit with Dr. Daugherty and Mrs. Carrie Coyner went, check it out here.
