The Sanford Harmony Program is designed to make a difference in how Pre-K through 6th grade boys and girls think about and treat each other. It supports positive interactions between boys and girls and lays the foundation for harmonious relationships in the future.
When we promote positive experiences with diverse peers and break down barriers to friendship, children will acquire more flexible thinking about others, develop a broader repertoire of social skills, and feel more comfortable and connected, leading to both social and academic benefits.
The program offers two components for fostering friendships and positive peer interactions: Everyday Practices and Classroom Activities. Everyday Practices are classroom strategies for bringing students together. Classroom Activities focus on skills for developing and maintaining positive relationships.
