“ENLACE is an academy in Lawrence, Massachusetts, that serves students who are newcomer immigrants. With the grant funding, we are creating a SEL Committee to drive our work by supporting a team of educators in their cohort to integrate SEL into classrooms and plan restorative circles and other interventions. We will partner with Panorama Education to collect student and teacher data to inform these supports. Additionally, we are creating a daily 60-minute elective class focused on yoga and wellness to increase student mindfulness, physical activity and overall wellness topics.”
