The myFace Wonder Project re-launched in February and gained quick momentum and rapid recognition as schools all over the country – California, Iowa, Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, and New York – have registered to choose kindness.
While myFace is continuing to recruit schools to participate, New York City Public schools were amongst the first to embrace the project as a perfect component to Respect for All Week. Virtual assemblies with themes of kindness, empathy, and compassion were presented and shared with close to 10,000 students. The ripple effect has been far reaching and the praise for the program demonstrates the impact it is already making:
“You managed to get the children thinking and talking in a deeper and much more meaningful way than was possible after only having read Wonder. We had to cancel our next class – the kids were so engaged! ” – a 5th grade teacher.
