Students at St. Edward School in Nashville, Tenn., make some noise during a Sept. 13 pep rally at the school. The pep rally began as a kickoff event for the school’s kindness campaign, in which all schools in the Diocese of Nashville will be emphasizing kindness throughout the year, as a way to boost students’ self-esteem, empathy and social connections.
