Oh my goodness. This is nothing short of amazing.

Gio LoBianco, a teacher at Pioneer calls this the  “…most powerful project ever.” And it is truly unbelievable!

This is an example of what we can do, as a society, if we embrace one another, understand one another, love one another and do everything we can to make everyone feel included and special. The staff and students at Pioneer deserve massive amounts of credit for reminding all of us about a life lesson that will never go out of style – Kindness!  Thank you!



Here is Mr. LoBianco’s tweet!
