Compassion tiles to hang permanently on La Crosse middle school walls

The tiles come from the display at the Pump House last year

Compassion Project Installation

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Students in La Crosse are getting a reminder of what compassion really is.

Longfellow Middle School and the La Crosse Design Institute, which are both under the same roof in La Crosse, are installing permanent tiles on the walls from La Crosse Public Education Foundation's Compassion Project. 

The project was displayed at the Pump House in La Crosse last year.

Students used the tiles to create artwork of what compassion means to them.

Students say it's a great way to keep the message going for years to come.

"Middle school can be tough, changing friends and meeting new people, so compassion is a big thing going through middle school," said LDI 8th grader Avalon Miller.

"Compassion can really change a person's life, just like a simple smile can make somebody's day," said LDI 8th grader Chase Penzkover.

The Longfellow campus is looking to add more tiles to the project in the future.
