The Stevenson High School National Honor Society took on a "Choose Kind" campaign this year and held two major events in November to energize the cause.

Students partnered with an organization called Fleece and Thank You, which provides thousands of blankets each year to children in various hospitals. This all-school fund-raiser at Stevenson was spearheaded by NHS and together, staff and students made 62 blankets, all with personal messages for the children who are in the hospital.

“This was an amazing experience and one that we hope to continue on a yearly basis,” said Angela Wojtyniak, SHS counselor and co-sponsor of Stevenson’s NHS.

Another “Choose Kind” activity was a field trip fund-raiser to a special screening of the movie, “Wonder,” at the Phoenix Theater. Students and staff sold 250 tickets, selling out two theaters!

“Wonder” is a story about a little boy with a Craniofacial Syndrome who just wants to be accepted as he begins a new school. It's a heartfelt story that truly can impact all ages. The book, “Wonder,” has been read in many LPS schools the past few years, so many were excited to hear that it was being made into a movie.

Stevenson NHS donated 50% of the ticket sales to U of M Mott Children's Hospital. In conjunction with this fundraiser, NHS hosted an all-day fundraiser at California Pizza Kitchen to help raise more money for the hospital. The total from both events was $1,750.
