From Sandy Hook to Seattle

Building the compassionate schools movement

Following the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, Dr. Christopher Kukk and Scarlett Lewis, mother of 6-year-old Jesse Lewis, began work to weave compassion into schools. They met with President Obama and soon after with his sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, who was developing compassion curriculum for schools on the opposite side of the country. The movement to create a nation of compassionate schools had begun.

Join Compassionate Seattle—Compassionate Schools Constellation for a networking conference for teachers, parents, students, administrators, and community partners as we learn from these experts and work together to promote social and emotional growth strategies, community service opportunities, earth stewardship initiatives and innovative perspectives for rethinking schools.
