Mr. Fabian Ramirez was able to present to each Middle School on Friday, February 16, 2023, on The Kindness in Me. Fabian's message challenged students to be a room changer by spreading kindness everywhere they go. Fabian also shared with the students the difference between snitching versus reporting, focusing on when you snitch on someone, you want them to get in trouble. However, when you report someone, you want them to get help. Finally, Fabian discussed with students that we cannot control how people treat us, but we can control our responses.

Kindness notes are an easy way to practice kindness. Kindness notes provide a concrete way to practice kindness through handwritten notes, electronic communication, or drawing pictures to show gratitude to others. Kindness notes can positively impact someone’s day. People will never forget how you made them feel.
To continue celebrating our Technology staff, here are just a few pictures of great lessons supported by our technology team. From finding exciting activities to do with students to enhance classroom learning, to making sure our equipment is operating properly and our network is top shape, we wouldn't be able to offer our students the experiences they get without each of them. Thank you for all you do everyday to support our students and our schools. We think we have the BEST IT Professionals!
We love our Technology Team. Today, we celebrate them!! Thank you for all that you do for our students, staff and administration.
A compliment is an expression of regard, admiration, praise, or respect. It feels great to receive a compliment. Research shows getting a sincere compliment gives us a positive boost and in turn also makes the giver and receiver happy. We know it can feel awkward sometimes to give a compliment and/or to receive one, but the more practice you get, the more natural it will feel. Such examples could include, “You’re like sunshine on a rainy day”, “You are beautiful on the inside and outside”, “You are making a difference” or You’re an awesome friend."
Page County Public Schools would like to give a sincere thank you to all of our School Resource Officers-- February 15, 2024, is School Resource Officer (SRO) Appreciation Day in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Love is truly the most powerful force known. Love is our highest good. It heals. It protects. It nurtures, uplifts, and transforms. Love is the sum of all goodness of the human heart. Then kindness is love in action. It is taking the love you have in your heart and giving it away to another. Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. When we show love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us to develop inner happiness and peace. Find a way today to spread kindness and show love for others.
In honor of Black History Month, we will be highlighting some innovations of African Americans that changed the way we produce and consume foods.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Smiling is one such random act of kindness. Smiling has been proven to increase endorphins – which help you and others feel much better. By giving someone a smile, it will encourage them to do the same. Smiling can be a chain reaction and often is contagious. Take a moment today to make someone smile.
