“It’s On Us!” Westlake Kindness Walk Celebrates Compassion

Westlake’s Lee Burneson Middle School hosted its first annual Kindness Walk on Monday, June 3, at 9 a.m. as students and staff participated in a walk (or run) for kindness along a 1.5-mile route in the community surrounding the middle school to promote kindness, positivity and mental health awareness.

The idea for the Kindness Walk came from Burneson+, the school’s student and staff led positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) group at the middle school.

Water stations were set up, and parents lined the route with signs to cheer and encourage students. Under the hashtag #It’sOnUs, the Walk celebrated the power of community in a big way!
