ON THE NEWS!

West Terrace Elementary School, which was partially sponsored by Look for the Good Project and a number of generous donors, was on the news this past November!

CENTRAL AVENUE SCHOOL SUPPORTS TWO SCHOOLS!

After experiencing the Look for the Good Project last year (as the first school in New Jersey!), Central Avenue School decided to cover the program fees for two schools!

Thanks to the generosity of the Gallogly Family Foundation and a number of generous individuals, we have been able to support the following schools by covering partial or complete program fees for the 2018 - 2019 school year: 

"It was amazing! Thank you so much for the opportunity to participate!!! We have already seen increases in the amounts of kindness being shared around the campus!"

"Students continue to verbally share their gratitude this week following our two week campaign!!!! Today, our school hosted a Parent/Child Learning Party for our Early Childhood students and families and we shared our school's participation in the  "Look for the Good Program" to further support our youngest learners! The kit that we received was amazingly thorough and we appreciate continued emails and opportunities to learn more about this wonderful program!"

TOM BEAN ELEMENTARY

"Our school lies on a border town between Mexico and the U.S. Some of the difficulties our students face is due to their families’ economic situations that affect their social, emotional and physical needs. Our students need a safe haven where they feel wanted, appreciated and validated."

C. L. MILTON ELEMENTARY

"Having tools that unite us in practicing positive rituals, like the Gratitude Wall and Gratitude Spots, would really compliment what we are already doing in our classrooms."

COLONIAL TRAIL SCHOOL

"Our school has implemented Everyday Kindness, the Great Kindness Week for the last two years; we are continuing our kindness campaign and want to use as many tools as possible. Look For The Good fits our model of looking acts of kindness and expressing gratitude. Our school is a also the school district and we are limited in funds; we have consistently emphasized kindness and gratitude in our programs with our students. Our school is a happy place and we'd like it to continue to be so."

KNIGHTS FERRY SCHOOL

"We are a very low socioeconomic area and our students do not always live with kindness. Our students deserve the very best [so] we are laser focused on taking care of the WHOLE child... not just the academic one. They must be exposed and internalize these character traits here at school. It matters."

ROGER E. SIDES ELEMENTARY

"South Athens Elementary is an preK-5th grade campus serving approximately 500 students, more than 80% come from economically disadvantaged homes. Despite our student backgrounds, our staff and students do things that make us proud every day. We are unique in that we are breaking glass ceilings despite the barriers."

SOUTH ATHENS ELEMENTARY 

"We have researched educational programs that help bring awareness to bullying and have decided to develop a kindness initiative. Riverside will use three ways to teach kindness. Stopbullying.gov outlines the three ways as Mindfulness, Social-Emotional Learning, and Acts of Kindness. We are in the process of planning activities, lessons, and events that focus on being kind to everyone you encounter. I believe our students and teachers would benefit from a structured program."

RIVERSIDE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

"Teaching students to think beyond themselves and care for others is one of the most important things that educators can do today. In addition to basic curriculum, I can’t think of a stronger purpose for schools. We have a kindness club already established that does random acts of kindness. We have a large selection of students in challenging situations and are always looking for ways to expand their world view and involvement, to teach them about other. In addition, we strongly support school-wide social emotional learning as well as trauma informed instructional practices."

WIELAND SCHOOL

"As a school community we promote respect, responsibility and learning daily throughout our school wide expectations, monthly character words, and morning announcements. Our school improvement team which is made up of administrators, teachers and coaches, is continually looking for ways to improve our school culture and climate and I believe this program would be a great fit for our school mission, to foster good citizenship, responsibility, self-discipline, and self-esteem."

MONARCH GLOBAL ACADEMY

"My student leaders for the project are a group of 5th graders who I call my 'Cardinal Flight Team.' They run activities throughout the year to promote positive character traits - so your project was PERFECT for them.  They are currently spending 2 days a week rehearsing for our kickoff assembly during recess.  They also each have an assigned morning announcement to read and have assigned days to visit classes to pick up their sticky notes to add to the gratitude wall."

CHATHAM ELEMENTARY

"We work very hard to develop the whole child, not just the academics. Being a good citizen, stand up for others, show kindness to others, and help our community are some of the values we work on every day. I think this program would compliment the curriculum we currently use. I believe a program such as "Look For The Good" will help our students appreciate each other more."

GLEN ROSE INTERMEDIATE

"I think our school would benefit from this program because we are at a 95% free lunch, title 1 school and have many foster and homeless families. For most of our students, school is the best part of their day, it is their safe haven. They finally have something of their own being at school and I feel this program will help them see the good that is still in their life."

GILBERT ELEMENTARY

"Our school is a magnet school and not a neighborhood school. Students attend from all across the valley. Establishing community and making sure all feel safe and valued at our school is our number one goal. Also, our school believes all learners need to be leaders. Look for the Good would be another way for students to participate as a leader."

NEW EMERSON STEAM SCHOOL

"Our school is very small. Being so small, means that the school culture depends on everyone getting along. There is no way to avoid people that you don't get along with, in a school this size. The impact of each and every person is felt dramatically by all, much like a shockwave. 5th graders who are acting up, can influence our younger students without ever even having a conversation together. We need to come together and build strength as one."

STOTT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

"At Skinner Road School, we have a diverse student population with varying ethnic, family structure and socio economic backgrounds. The Look for the Good program would encourage all students to celebrate the strengths of students with unique needs, as they integrate within the general education curriculum. We also have a Student Council program and that could help support this initiative consistently throughout the school year."

SKINNER ROAD SCHOOL

"Putnam is an inner city school district and many students here are facing tough situations at home at very young ages. Sadly, school is the only place where students feel safe, comfortable and welcome to be themselves. A gratitude program like this one will allow us to change the climate of our building to one of gratitude and kindness.  [We have recently had two deaths in the school community so] this program will lift up or school. We have proven that we can come together in difficult times. Now we have a chance to come together and be grateful for each other."
