Young people and adults learn and practice skills to help them do well in school and in life.
Young people stay connected through processes that foster a caring and equitable school community.
School staff increase their cultural competency and ensure that school systems and structures elevate every child.
I can't thank you enough for all the resources, support, and encouragement! This program is breathing new life and meaning into my teaching. It is bringing new conversations into our teaching lives and friendships.
The impact of this work is apparent in our data, including our academic performance and surveys of teachers, students, and parents, which show how much trust there is between students and staff. Suspensions are now a rarity in our school. We don’t need suspensions to sustain student engagement and respect.
The circle helps me connect with the students and the school and the staff. My favorite moment is when everyone comes together, becomes a family…and just shares.
