About be nice. club

The be nice. club at Grandville High School is made up of students in 9th-12th grade who are committed to mental health awareness, treating others with kindness, and contributing to the positive climate of the school. The club runs different events during the school year to help support its goal.

What is be nice?
be nice. is a positive anti-bullying initiative designed to spread awareness surrounding the issues of bullying and the importance of treating people with civility community-wide. By creating awareness, we will minimize and reduce the devastating effects of bullying such as depression and suicide. The be nice. campaign strives to educate students and community members about how simply "being nice" is an effective way to promote a safe and civil environment within the school and community.
Nice stands for Notice, Invite, Challenge, Empower.

​To be nice:
● is more than just saying don’t bully.
● is a strengths-based perspective, and a positive way to minimize bullying. We have learned over the years that just telling someone to "stop" or ​"don't" is negative and often ignored.
● is a proactive way to encourage kindness among kids, parents, co-workers, etc.
● is all-encompassing. It goes further than just an action.
