SPOTLIGHT TESTIMONIAL - For Outstanding Examples of Operation Nice in Action
Big praise out to Creekside Student Ambassador, Alison K., for "Spreading the Nice" outside of school. Read what Alison's mother wrote to us:
"I just wanted to share this story. Alison and I went to McDonald's for dinner tonite. When she [opened her Happy Meal and] realized that she already had the toy, she went over to a little girl and handed her the toy. When the girl's mom asked if she was sure, Alison responded that she was "Spreading the Nice" like they do at school. I was impressed and proud at the same time."
