KEYSER - A small group of students at Keyser Middle School have taken on the task of becoming a positive voice for their fellow students.
Abigail DelSignore, Kylie Keplinger and Tanner Clauze have been spending time during the summer coming up with positive messages to share with their fellow students once school starts on Aug. 22.
“We do positive messages on a poster, normally a quote,” DelSignore said recently as the three gathered on a summer afternoon to work on their project.
“We have a bulletin board in the cafeteria; we think of positive messages and put them up,” Keplinger said.
According to Clauze, the messages will be changed every week.
Keplinger explained that the idea started with last year’s eighth graders, who left positive messages around the school to help the younger students keep a positive attitude throughout the year.
“Dr. Holller wanted us to continue,” DelSignore said, adding that principal Edward Holler has been very supportive with the project.
The students say they hope their efforts will help make a difference throughout the year.
Holler said his main guideline for the students’ project has been to make sure the messages can appeal to as many students as possible.
“I always tell them it’s not a joke unless everyone laughs … it has to be applicable to all kids,” he said.
Holler said the students have so far impressed him with their efforts.
“They are the cream of the crop,” he said.
