The COREMatters Project is a multi-dimensional classroom experience focusing on social emotional learning, empathy and respect building instruction utilizing cooperative learning activities, role playing, classroom discussions, individual work, as well as physical activities.
The COREMatters Project employs a holistic approach boldly going back to basics-RESPECT.
The strongest part of anything is its center: the CORE. The body's core is responsible for its strength, resiliency and balance. However, if the body's core is strong but the mind and spirit are not, the WHOLE person is not in balance.
Our goal is to work with today's youth. Strengthening their CORE will create respectful, resilient individuals.
Although we cannot keep stressors, adversity and conflict from our children, we will give them the tools that can help them build a strong foundation. This will be a vital first-step in encouraging strength from within that will last a lifetime.
