Focusing on Peacemaking

I just lead an anti-bullying workshop for parents at the wonderful Bradford School in Montclair, NJ. This is a school completely dedicated to peacemaking, and it shows. From the thousand paper cranes hanging in the halls, to the Peacemaker of the Week bulletin board proudly displayed with pictures of all the kid who have earned this honor, the kids at Bradford are learning that kindness is cool, and compassion is the way to go.

More on what's happening at Bradford in future posts. What are you doing in your school to promote peacemaking and anti-bullying? E-mail me at and let me know.
