How: Make a Tax Deductible Donation to www.fomtms.org/restorativejustice or via check payable to FOMT. Levels: $100, $200, $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000
Why: Studies have shown that a positive and safe school environment can help students socially, emotionally and academically. Through the RJ process, students learn to (1) constructively express themselves to their peers, (2) listen to each other, (3) cultivate empathy, **and** (4) create a sense of belonging in the Mark Twain community, (5) effectively navigate conflict resolution, and (6) mindfulness. These skills are invaluable during critical middle school years and going forward. The district can no longer support this vital program at MTMS due to budget cuts. Dr. Ford and FOMT are committed to funding a full-time RJ counselor at MTMS, but we need your help. Please attend the event or contribute to FOMT @ www.fomtms.org/restorativejustice
Hosts: Chaka Forman , Leila Feinstein, Ruthie Seroussi, Mike Newhouse, Alyssa & Barak Moffitt, Alexander & Alexandra Lippens, Douglas Glover, Holly Watson, Andrew Galambos, Rebecca Mcelhenney, Carolina Paredes, the Carpenters.
