Calm Schools Initiative
In today’s rapidly changing world, children face unique social and emotional challenges. Kids are experiencing greater pressures earlier in life, and feel more stress and anxiety than ever before.
Calm Schools Initiative offers every teacher in the world free access to Calm, the mindfulness app that hundreds of thousands of people all over the world use everyday. Their aim is to empower teachers with mindfulness tools and resources they can use to help kids learn this new skill.
Under this initiative, any teacher with a K-12 classroom, anywhere in the world, can get free access to Calm’s paid subscription service (available on Android, iOS and the web). Teachers will have unlimited access to a growing library of guided meditations and mindfulness exercises, including Calm Kids, programs tailored for age groups from pre-K through high school. Over the coming year, we will be steadily adding to our Calm Kids library, equipping teachers with an ever-expanding supply of content crafted for the unique needs of their students.

There has been some issue with browsers when logged in to Power School Assessment – Power Test portion. I’ve placed a new link in both the Family Center (for student logins) and in the Login section of the Staff Dashboard. This new link will ask directly for student ID to login and should fix any issues if students need to relog or for any closed browser issues. Thanks, Derek Ben, for fixing this issue.
Look for the POWER TEST button in either the Family Center or Staff Dashboard Logins
If there is anything that you would like to see included here in the Dashboard, do not hesitate to send me an email. I’ll make sure to get it up online for you.
