Our district was thrilled to have the wonderful SchoolYard Rap team come out and provide an outstanding learning experience to our students!
SchoolYard Rap is a team of educators, creators, and agents of change who work with staff and students to present a rich curriculum designed to teach our students the value of empathy, understanding, diversity, and collaboration – especially within the context of respecting the multicultural environments in which they are often part of.
Through the power of performance, our students got an in-depth understanding of the harmful effects of using insensitive and hate-filled language. Students were also shown how to celebrate their own cultures while respecting the various different cultures of their peers.
Our students were engaged – they were able to gain skills and attitudes needed to promote compassion, excellence, and equity while having fun and being able to enjoy the performances with their classmates!
