Seaford Middle School celebrated P.S. I Love You Day on Feb. 11, a national initiative that raises awareness about the importance of mental health.
Students and staff showed their unity by wearing purple. The hallways were filled with purple balloons and other decorations to spark joy. There were purple sticky notes throughout the school with inspirational messages from “Be Kind” to “You Can Make a Difference.”
During their Ask and Support for Kids sessions, which are held every other Wednesday for the last 20 minutes of the day, students wrote positive messages on purple hearts, which were then hung outside of the main office and the cafeteria. This was their way of spreading kindness to each other.
Teachers also fostered the important message of P.S. I Love You Day in their classes. Sixth grade co-teachers Jennifer Bass and Chelsea Bianco showed their appreciation for all of their students with a personalized note for each child.
P.S. I Love You Day activities were coordinated by social worker Amanda Smith, with support from the school’s pupil personnel services staff.
“We really wanted to emphasize the importance of spreading kindness and positivity, as well as recognizing the impact our words and actions have on the people around us,” Ms. Smith said. “Students and staff fully embraced this initiative and helped to cover the middle school with purple hearts and sticky notes with kind messages to help brighten everyone’s day.”
