Students’ positive notes makes impact on school

Small acts of kindness are needed for everyone in this world. At DeKalb High School that is what students and staff are doing.

Ms. McKenzie Reagan’s foreign language classes started writing friendly notes to students in the school. It was so successful that it has now become a school-wide activity. Friendly Note Friday takes place every two weeks on Free Friday.

“Last year a lot of kids were having a rough day; I felt we needed to bring some positivity,” Reagan said.

Reagan believes there are over 100 notes given out every Friday.

On Free Friday a few students help give out the notes. These are usually students in Spanish l and ll. One of those students is freshman Ariana Geoffroy. Geoffroy really likes to see the reaction from the notes.

“It makes me really happy to see their reaction,” Geoffroy said.  

Sophomore Carley Christgen is one of the students who usually receives a note.

“It makes you really happy to receive a note every Free Friday,” Christgen said.

Reagan plans to continue with Friendly Note Fridays as long as people continue to write notes. As of right now, she does not plan to make any changes.

“I’ve not thought about it,” Reagan said. “I am always open for changes, though.”
