GCS Partners with Greensboro Police Department to kick off Random Acts of Kindnes

GCS Character Development Team and Counseling Services in partnership with The Greensboro Police Department (GPD) launched a program called Students Overcoming Situations (SOS) which is designed to teach children how to be safe, deal with conflict, and understand what it means to demonstrate self-respect as well as respect for others.

The ultimate goal of this program is to provide an additional resource to GCS in their efforts to develop young people who make good decisions, and care for those around them as they take responsibility for their own actions.

On February 14th, select GCS schools sponsored a soft launch in honor of Random Acts of Kindness Week in which police officers will read the book, Officer Buckle and Gloria, a story about a police officer and his safety dog, Gloria, teaching elementary students important safety tips.
