My Project

Through this project, you'll be exposing students to a variety of life skills to help them with their emotions, self-esteem, mindfulness, equity, and more. Students will also learn to resolve conflicts, make friends, set goals, and have a growth mindset.

Your donation will help to enhance social learning in the classroom and at home.

These skills will help students for their rest of their lives. They are excited to learn and grow from these books! We want our students to learn to be kind and inclusive, and that it's okay to make mistakes. Thank you so much!

Ms. Montera
