Thirty-one posters were recently hung up around Staples to promote school security. The posters were organized by Kool 2 Be Kind (K2BK) through their new program “Say Something Hall of Fame” in accordance with the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation.
These posters feature the name, fun fact and contact information of a teacher.
“Kool to Be Kind (K2BK) is proud to announce that we became an official Sandy Hook Promise (SHP) partner last school year,” the email read. “As we strive to bring lessons of kindness and empathy to the elementary schools, we are also making efforts to spread the message to the SHS community as well,” Shamas said.
Different teachers were nominated, chosen and reached out to by the club. The posters’ purpose is to create a more kind school community and show students teachers they can reach out to and trust.
“The posters were created by the K2BK club to recognize staff members who were nominated by students as being a trusted adult in the building,” art teacher Angela Simpson said. “I have no idea who nominated me, but I was very flattered to be contacted”.
The program is titled “Say Something Hall of Fame” and aims to promote trustworthy and reliable teachers.
Science teacher Heather Wirkus was contacted by members of K2BK and asked to be a part of the project.
“It would be an honor to be in the ‘Say Something Hall of Fame.’ I would love to be a part of this,” Wirkus said.
The posters will be posted throughout the winter and then again in the spring. All teachers are encouraged to join as a trusted adult.
“It means so much to me to nurture kindness and respect,” Simpson said. “The hope is that if there is a student who is struggling and they’re not sure who they can reach out to, they might try seeking out one of the folks in the posters.”

The hope is that if there is a student who is struggling and they’re not sure who they can reach out to, they might try seeking out one of the folks in the posters.”
