“I knew we had to do something,” said Kristen Caminit. “And so when a mom of a student here at Crofton Middle [School] reached out to me and said, ‘What if we chalk the walk?’ I was like, ‘That would be amazing.’ And I think it’s just a really visible symbol of the positivity and kindness that this community really represents.”

When the children arrive at school Monday morning, they will see one positive message after another.
