Cool at School: Be Kind Campaign at Bryan Elementary

LAS VEGAS - Students at Bryan Elementary School are exercising their vocal chords in an effort to help create positive learning environments. The effort represents What's Cool at School.

Second through fifth graders at Bryan Elementary kicked off the campaign with a big scream. The scream was recorded on the phone of Drew Stevens. He is the father of Josh Stevens, a 12-year-old boy who died in an accident.

Drew helped establish the Josh Stevens Foundation, which partners with schools, businesses and youth organizations to promote kindness in schools. He launched the "Be Kind, Just Do It" campaign at Bryan Elementary.

"Josh is being remembered for his kind heart. Josh was kind. He was kind to everybody. Every single day in Josh's life, he did something kind for others," he said.

The kids at Bryan Elementary are part of the Be Kind movement. If they are caught doing something kind, they get a bracelet and an award certificate. These adorable second graders say they loved the message.

"To be kind and don't be mean to other people, because it'll hurt their feelings," said second grader Aidrik Teal.

"Being kind is being sweet to each other and not pushing people around," added second grader Calah Ayson.

"I think it's just being nice and be like Josh and don't be mean like anyone else," said second grader Elizabeth Ayson.
