Be on the lookout for hand-painted rocks with kind messages around Quitman! SWAT has been inspiring kindness since 2017 with the Kindness Rocks Project. This nationwide community service project spreads the message of kindness. If you find a kindness rock, you may move the rock to another location. If the rock touches your heart with its written message, you may keep it. Join the Kindness Rocks Project by painting and hiding your own rock. SWAT students hope you have fun finding the rocks and spreading kindness in Quitman!
