Waukee Middle School Gives Love over Spring Break
When Waukee Middle School librarian Kelly Reynolds and her seventh-grade ambassador students created #GiveLove stickers to spread love around the world while students and staff traveled for spring break, they never thought they would get a response from Andy Grammer.
After the district kicked off the year with the #GiveLove theme, which included a video featuring Andy Grammer’s hit song, Give Love, students and staff at Waukee Middle School were instructed to include the stickers in their social media posts while they were on vacation. With help from technology coach Stacy Hansen and Reynolds, students were able to set up a Google Map to display all of the #GiveLove sticker posts.
“Students were excited to reach a global audience. They really wanted to spread love in a time when the world needs it the most,” said Reynolds.
Their excitement reached a new high when Grammer posted a video praising Waukee Middle School for their kindness on his Instagram story.
