State Representative Ken Gordon reads
the official proclamation declaring May
the Month of Kindness to the 4th and
5th grade students at Francis Wyman

Representative Gordon & Dr. Conti share a few "kind"
words following the assembly.
 May is the Official Month of Kindness, thanks to some of our Francis Wyman students.  It takes a long time for an idea to become law as our students found out this past year.  Governor Baker officially signed a law recently proclaiming that May is the Month of Kindness.  "There isn't enough kindness in the world and we all need a reminder..." said Representative Ken Gordon who came back to Francis Wyman to share this proclamation with our students who have been invested in getting this law passed for over a year.
Here's the official document:
And here's a picture of the FW students at the State House with Governor Baker the day he signed this law:

Way to go kids!  You make us PROUD!
