#th1ng is a movement that principal Chris Botts started in order to create change in students lives and help build the relationship between teacher and student.

“I challenged the staff yesterday to do one thing every day to make a difference. And that could be writing a letter to a kid, making a phone call home and hopefully they are doing more than one thing, but at a minimum of one thing a day that’s gonna make a difference or make somebody’s day,” Botts said.

Botts presented this idea during a faculty meeting with the intent to help build the relationship between student and teacher, and he wants to see change happen at the school.

“…if they do that every single day throughout the school year, just think about the number of people that will have a positive impact,” Botts said.

Students are encouraged to follow through with this movement too by doing one nice thing for other students or teachers and staff.
