Class 5B has been chosen to participate in the Roots of Empathy Program! We are super excited about this opportunity to welcome Baby Luke and his mom Sandy into our classroom.
The focus of Roots of Empathy in the long term is to build capacity of the next generation for responsible citizenship and responsive parenting. In the short term, Roots of Empathy focuses on raising levels of empathy, resulting in more respectful and caring relationships and reduced levels of bullying and aggression. Part of our success is the universal nature of the program; all students are positively engaged instead of targeting bullies or aggressive children.
The program will be facilitated by Eugena Rempel-Witten and will include a monthly pre-visit, baby visit, and a post- visit throughout the year. Our first pre-visit is scheduled for Wednesday and we get to meet Baby Luke and Sandy on Friday!!!
