NTPS: A Compassionate Community

  • Visit our Compassionate Community Facebook Page! North Thurston Public Schools is proud to follow the principles of the International Charter for Compassion 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 including our compassion coins -- be sure to "pay it forward" if you get one. The idea is to recognize acts of compassion to others, our community and the earth. For more information on the international movement visit http://charterforcompassion.org.

Seasons of Compassion

  • For 2019-20, each of our schools will be choosing their own Compassion Projects quarterly. Keep an eye on your school's Seasons of Compassion board to see where you and your student can help out! Compassion projects can help us be Stronger Together!
