Grand Prairie Elementary School celebrated the spirit of kindness all week during Red Ribbon and Bully Prevention Week, held Oct. 21-25 at the school.

The school has always observed this special week in October for years. New this year, Tom Kress, of Your Power Project, presented to students about being powerful and using their voice to tell someone if they are hurt. Also, the school held its annual Family School Partnership Book Fair and Family Night during the week, themed “Kindness is Cool”, featuring Arctic animals.
