Rebuilding Our School Community:

Navigating the New Normal

 The Need

  As educators, our lives have been forever changed. We have all experienced trauma in some form. Our school year ended abruptly and our students and families are struggling with the sudden interruption of life and learning as they knew it. As schools begin to make plans for reopening, it is imperative that we address the effect of this pandemic experience not only for our students, but also for the adults who work with them.

The Solution

 To help rebuild school communities and create a new vision of caring schools, CREATE has developed a one-day re-entry program for educators (teachers, administrators, and the many support staff working in our schools), called “Rebuilding Community: Navigating the New Normal.” This curriculum is for schools that are returning face to face and also as a virtual community for the 2021-2022 school year.

 This one-day session provides opportunities to explore adult social and emotional needs, learn and collaborate on strategies to build caring connections with our students and colleagues both at the level of the classroom and school. Join us as we share laughter, talents, experiences and plans that will help nurture our relationships for creating a success school year for all.

 How Can Schools Implement “Rebuilding Community”?

 CREATE is offering this in several ways.
    1. Our certified trainer will work directly with your school staff in a virtual setting.
    2. Our certified trainer will work on-site (your location) for a live face-to-face training.
    3. You can attend the train-the trainer sessions that will support educators to lead
         “Rebuilding Community” in their   school or district.
