I like to be nice to people because I have friends in my classroom. They are nice to me and I am nice to them and that is why I like going to school. I like my friends. If people don't have friends and aren't nice at school and then they will not want to go to school. you learn more and better when school is nice to you, teachers and everybody, then you feel like you want to be nice to everybody.
If I came to school feeling sad....I would want someone to play with me and help me feel better. I'd play with somebody if they were sad and mad. So, being nice is helpful in your days.
