Benefit Billboard

Benefit Billboard

The Benefit Billboard illusion was inspired by a t-shirt Mrs. Mays created 8 years ago that showcased "Be a benefit and not a bully" and "expect respect." Through this illusion, she wanted her students to bring together love, peace, and coping skills.  The multicolored hearts are individual, but they come together to create a bigger peace design representing how diverse people can come together to make society/humanity better.  The large message reminds bullies to try a new approach to behavior, while the small hearts reminds victims to stand up for themselves and pass on their "beneficial behavior." Although Mrs. Mays' 8th grade students created the display, the Senior High students of her study hall cut out all of the hearts and researched synonyms to write on them. Mrs. Mays hopes this will inspire our future citizens to treat people humanely and spread happiness.

The Kindness Rock Project

Last school year, Mrs. Pierce and Mrs. Shaffer’s students were inspired after one of their peers brought a painted rock to school one day and shared it with the class. The rock was painted with a cat and an inspirational message that said “Smile.” On the back of the rock was a hashtag, #thekindnessrockproject, and the words “keep or pass along for someone to find.” The students became very curious and began asking questions. Mrs. Pierce and Mrs. Shaffer realized that this would be a great opportunity to get their students involved in a project that promoted positivity and mindfulness. They had the students turn this into a research assignment and find out exactly why receiving a positive message could change a person’s mindset.
