Adams 12 Five Star Schools receives Helping Kids Grant

Adams 12 was one of only 16 recipients of the the Helping Kids Grant awarded by the School Superintendents Association (AASA). These disaster relief funds will allow several schools within Adams 12 to work towards addressing the increasing social-emotional needs of our students following the COVID-19 pandemic, to include providing students with self-regulation tools and strategies so that they and their classmates can fully access their learning; creating safe and calming environments in which students can practice social-emotional skills such as self awareness and social awareness; incorporating mental and emotional wellness into physical education classes; and providing spaces in which students can connect with one another and adults in activities that increase their sense of connection and belonging in their school community.
