“Kindness in the Classroom® is a free Tier 1 evidenced-based social emotional learning curriculum designed to helps schools create a culture of kindness. By including a focus on equity, teacher self-care, and digital citizenship, The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is excited to share an engaging, relatable, and inclusive curriculum.
All Kindness in the Classroom® lesson plans have been mapped to the five CASEL Core Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Competencies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health Education Standards (NHES), the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards, when applicable, and the national Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy, Mathematics, History/Social Studies, and Science & Technical Subjects. Utilization and adoption of these national standards and competencies vary by state, however, teachers can align their own state standards with each lesson as well. For each unit, a Standards Map was created to summarize each of the standards met by all lessons within that unit.
Kindness in the Classroom® is designed to pro-actively build healthy relationships among students and a culture of kindness within your school. With this effective curriculum, bullying can oftentimes be prevented.
The curriculum has been rated “excellent” by the Equity Project based on this report.
Dear Parents, Staff, and Teachers,This is not the way I hoped to make first contact with many of you. Unfortunately, the district has experienced an unfortunate failure that has interrupted the water supply to the Admin and JSHS facilities.Because of this, I, with input from the board, have decided to push school opening at least one week, as we assess the issue and devise a remedy. For now, new staff will report on August 9th, all staff will be at District training on August 10th, Building training will take place on August 11th, and classes will begin on August 12th.Please feel free to contact your school or District administrator if you have any questions. As always I am available to talk at any time. We appreciate your patience during this delay.Thank you and we’re looking forward to an excellent new school year for The Hornet Nation.Best,Kyle CooperSuperintendentHanover School District
