“We plan to launch a significant focus on social and emotional learning through a series of events and experiences for our 700+ students. We will mobilize a group of student leaders who will become ambassadors of equity and respect. These students will mentor peers and teachers. We will also launch a year-long professional learning experience for teachers and develop an introductory week of school culture activities that break down barriers between various groups of students. Finally, we will create a Day of Understanding for the entire school and other invited schools to come together to celebrate with an event that will include a TED Talk competition focused on social awareness and relationship building.”
