On May 7, 2020, CAS hosted a special Town Hall event to talk about ideas for virtual celebrations, promotions and other end-of-year activities. A guest panel explored ways that elementary and middle school leaders are creatively carrying on with many of the traditional end-of-school activities that are so important to students and families. Panel members also shared resources to help school leaders think of new and creative ways to build relationships and school spirit. A recording of the webinar is now available for anyone who missed it.

To assist schools and other youth serving community organizations to create physically, emotionally and intellectually safe and respectful learning and social environments for all students and the adults who work with them.
We invite you to work with me and others in helping our students learn to work together in schools safely and respectfully while simultaneously learning important academic and life skills. This website, which represents a summary of much of my work in trying to improve school climate and become restorative both in Connecticut and across the country, contains a variety of links and useful references for parents, community leaders, educators (teachers, administrators, and others involved in supporting school communities), and anyone else concerned with improving the lives of youth. The information contained here is intended to provide others with helpful information, including critical research and strategies designed specifically to guide adults on a pathway to creating respectful, safe and educational school and social settings in which every individual can thrive and be successful in all aspects of life. Thank you for being a part of this very important journey. We so appreciate your participation. Our children thank you too!
