Special education teacher Jen Linthicum spearheaded the effort, enlisting the aid of several teachers and staff, who wrote positive words on the hearts such as “You are loved,” “You are awesome,” and “You make a difference.” Every assigned locker in the building sported a heart for the early-morning welcome.
