Visitors of Chisum Middle School have been noticing hearts throughout the school. Each heart represents an act of kindness done by a student or staff member, recognized by another and turned in. The name of the do-gooder is put on a heart, and for each good deed done, 50 cents is put into a fund to help someone in need at Christmas. This year, there were more than 400 good deeds acknowledged, raising $210 to help others.
“This would not work if the students do not recognize the kindness being given to them by others,” nurse Susan Chennault said. “Some of the things turned in on the tickets brought me to tears — from students writing of other students helping them when they are struggling to understand their homework to being a shoulder to lean on to a teacher writing that a student gave up his place on the UIL team for another student.”
Chennault also credited Principal Aaron Bridges, saying he goes above and beyond to serve students and staff. For the 12 days of Christmas, Bridges provided something special, from cotton candy to presents. “He does all the shopping and preparing and taking the time to visit and love these kids each day. Good deeds really do make your heart grow,” she said.
