“My fourth grade class and I created the 'P.E.A.C.E. Project', a SEL project focusing on being positive, encouraging and showing compassion every day. Lifting others up and caring for others empower the students themselves and imprints hearts and communities around us. Our goal is to teach, model, practice and spread the P.E.A.C.E. in our school, neighborhood and community. Our dream is to spread our 'P.E.A.C.E. Project' throughout the nation! Through this SEL project, students will be able to build upon their own social capital and are empowered to make an incredible difference in others’ lives and communities.”
