Williamson County Schools is proud to announce year two of BE NICE! Mayor Rogers Anderson will once again proclaim September as “BE NICE Month” in Williamson County. City leaders in Brentwood, Fairview, Franklin and Spring Hill have already made the proclamation with Nolensville and Thompson’s Station scheduled to do the same.
BE NICE 2.0, as it’s being called, officially kicked off June 3 when student ambassadors and faculty from each school gathered together for the BE NICE Leadership Conference. They spent the day getting to know one another and learning new ways to spread the BE NICE message.
The students and staff also sat down with members of the WCS Communications team to discuss the BE NICE movement and what it means to them. The video above is the first of several that WCS will release in the coming months.
In the 2013-14 school year, a group of Fairview High School students and staff began working on ways to create a culture of kindness in their school. Together, they came up with the slogan BE NICE and began printing t-shirts and signs with the mantra. As the message spread, photos of students, teachers, celebrities and professional athletes holding the BE NICE sign began to appear on social media. More importantly, teachers and students at Fairview High began to report a change in student behavior. Turns out, the BE NICE message was making a real difference!
On September 3, 2014, Williamson County Schools hosted a special event at the Franklin Theatre to kick-off the start of the district-wide BE NICE movement. Student representatives from each school were joined by mayors from around the county as the district celebrated the BE NICE way of life.
