Bonus Episode: ‘Kindness Is a Skill That We Can Get Better At’

April 23, 2019

It's Kindness Week at Canby High School, a new initiative aimed at encouraging students to walk in “others’ shoes” as they model kindness, friendship, trust, gratitude, and empathy. It kicked off in Monday with a special guest speaker, Esteban Gast, a storyteller, comedy writer and entertainer who spoke on the subject of kindness. 

Kindness Week is an initiative of the Canby Suicide Prevention Task Force, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Canby, CHS’ “Talk About It” group and many other local organizations and businesses. It's part of ongoing efforts around mental wellness and suicide prevention following the tragic suicide deaths of two CHS students that rocked the entire Canby community last spring.
