Plans and resources for building community and strengthening relationships

Students who feel connected to their teachers and peers attend school more regularly, achieve more academically, and are more likely to graduate than those who lack those connections. Supporting students’ relationships with one another and their teachers had never been more important. As part of Healing Together, SDP is embracing daily Community Meetings as one way to strengthen that sense of community and connection to school.Please review the following resources, which we will continue to update throughout the school year.
