Kalee Blackburn and Caroline Rippeto
Students and staff wrote the names of those who lift them up on balloons as part of Episcopal High School’s Dude Be Nice Week. The week’s events were planned by the Student Council to cultivate a culture of gratitude and generosity. The motto was “Make Kindness Normal.” Pictured are student body president Caroline Rippeto, who wrote that her friends lift her up, with teacher Kalee Blackburn, who wrote that her AP Biology class lifts her up. Many students tied their balloons on their backpacks or as decoration around campus.
