Every time we have asked families about priorities for their schools this year the top of every list is more mental health supports for students. That’s why I’m excited to share that our free program, Teach Kindness is back with new lessons for 2021-22. Teach Kindness provides access to research-based tools and resources, to those who want to incorporate kindness into the school day and make kindness a practical, commonplace skill.
Registration for Teach Kindness is now open and, as always, the program is completely free. This year we are continuing to offer social-emotional learning lessons with no requirements or obligations: you choose from dozens of powerful classroom lessons, you choose the timeline, no obligations or deadlines. We’ve also added new lessons this year that expressly respond to the emotional challenges coming out of the last year and a half. 86% of respondents that participated in Teach Kindness last year reported that it had a positive impact on the climate at my school.
