Compassionate Community

A blue infinity sign, painted in light blue with the word A Compassionate Community

North Thurston Public Schools is proud to follow the International Charter for Compassion principles, which recognizes that we treat each other with kindness, respect differences, and make our district a place where everyone belongs and feels safe. This call to action will help enrich our Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) system in our schools, which teaches behavior expectations to students throughout the year and provides positive recognition for those following the expectations. NTPS promotes compassionate acts and honors those who demonstrate compassion in our schools with a variety of compassion-centered activities, tools, and educational opportunities. The idea is to recognize acts of compassion to others, our community, and the earth.
