Some of our recent projects funded with YOUR help:
Social-Emotional Space at Buffalo Trail Elementary
“My students freely use the social emotional space throughout the day to re-regulate themselves. This frees up time for me to meet academic needs while students are managing their emotional well-being. The grant has positively impacted my students by creating and nurturing a safe space where students feel a sense of belonging.” – Anna Esgro, elementary teacher
A Little Spot of SEL at Sagebrush Elementary
“Our students really enjoyed the stories and activities and were able to connect with the emotions that we covered. They were able to make connections with events in their lives, with stories that they have read and then were able to translate those connections into their daily lives in school. Knowing how to recognize some of those core emotions in themselves and others allowed them the opportunity to build empathy towards others.” - Kalen Crane, elementary teacher
Coffee Carts at Sky Vista Middle School
“The funds awarded to our program were used for our monthly coffee cart. Making coffee, delivering coffee and counting change has really helped my students come out of their shells and feel more confident. My students are now comfortable in the community and working with adults.” - Rochelle Loob, special education teacher
Helping Students Find Their Strengths at Cherry Creek High School
“We wanted to empower students by helping them identify and understand their specific strengths. Our grant allowed students to have access to an assessment and valuable resources linked to their specific strengths. Students were actively engaged in this work, and the responses and feedback we have received from students has been extremely positive. Our students have gained an understanding and appreciation of their individual strengths. They are demonstrating increased confidence and belief in themselves as a result of this grant.” - David Rowe, high school teacher
