"On February 26th, the McAuliffe Middle School invited Mr. Drew Stevens of the Josh Stevens Foundation to present an assembly on the importance of kindness and the legacy students can leave behind. To support this very important message, all of the staff at McAuliffe wore "Be Kind Like Josh" T-shirts, provided by the School and Home Association, to demonstrate to the students our solidarity toward this positive movement promoting kindness in our school. Anyone who wants to learn more about this foundation can logon to JoshStevensFoundations."
