Grade 4 or 5
Understand why and how to make kind choices.
Enhance empathy skills to understand how words and actions affect others.
Develop conflict-resolution strategies that can be used in response to unkind actions.
We welcome students with music and high-energy activities that break down social barriers. Our goal is to encourage students to take positive risks with one another.
After building a sense of community, our staff shares the retreat’s goals. We encourage students to take a closer look at how they’re treating themselves and others at their school.
Our Program Staff share personal stories centered on the value of the retreat. With humor and heart, staff challenge students to make a difference in their lives and in their school.
Throughout the day, students meet in small groups, facilitated by high school or adult leaders, to process what they are learning and experiencing.
At the end of the retreat, students get the chance to safely and publicly express how they will show more kindness to their teachers and classmates every day.
