Longmont's Main Street School engages in The Great Kindness Challenge

For the first time, about 100 students at Longmont's Main Street School participated in the national Great Kindness Challenge, a weeklong bullying prevention initiative.

As part of the challenge, students from kindergarten to adults in Main Street School's special education programs worked to spread kindness around the school and community.

Some students cleaned up the campus while others made blankets and scarves to give to the OUR Center and the Longmont Humane Society.

Main Street School caters to students with disabilities. Building Administrator Heidi Weekley said that students could have a range of issues that prevented them from accessing education at other schools, whether it is an emotional disability, physical disability or a student on the autism spectrum.
