Middle School Workshops
Our workshops are fun, interactive, and engaging. We work with one grade-level at a time so that we can meet students where they are and then introduce them to a new possibility of what school could look like; a school where we look beyond assumptions and judgments, and take the time to really get to know one another.
These 40-45 minute sessions take place in a classroom where we see a whole grade-level in one day, one classroom at a time. These workshops are designed to debrief the larger format grade-level workshop, and allow an opportunity to continue the conversation in a more intimate (safe) environment.
IN ORDER FOR STUDENTS TO LEARN, THEY NEED TO FEEL SAFE
WE SUPPORT SCHOOLS TO INCREASE PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL SAFETY SO STUDENTS ARE SET UP FOR SUCCESS IN THE CLASSROOM
“The challenges of a middle school student reach beyond academics and a G.P.A. Students struggle with fitting in with peers, stress of family relationships, and navigating in a small community, filled with judgment and drama. Soul Shoppe provides tools for middle school students, by teaching them to use empathy, and to consider what’s below the surface of a face, smile, frown, or silence. Our middle school community is a much nicer place because of Soul Shoppe.”
-Sandy Kontilis, M.A., Assistant Principal, Stone Valley Middle School
These 60-90 minute trainings allow for us to share Soul Shoppe’s philosophy, tools and strategies with all adults on campus so that we can speak a common language and work together towards a safe and productive learning environment
