Roots of Empathy Program
We are pleased to be a participating school in the Roots of Empathy Program. Roots of Empathy is an evidence-based classroom program that has shown dramatic effect in reducing levels of aggression among schoolchildren by raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy. The program reaches elementary schoolchildren from Kindergarten to Grade 8. We are pleased to announce this year that we will have two classes participating this year! Mrs. Brenda McCormack (facilitator, National trainer and former Our Lady of Mount Carmel parent) will be one instructor, while the other will be our school Social Worker, Mrs. Sal Grice. Our moms and babies will be Mrs. Erin Salciccioli (former teacher from Our Lady of Mount Carmel) and her son Myles, and Mrs. Fuca and her son Christian. These programs will be run in Mrs. Murray-Stanicak's Grade 1/2 class and Mr. Fuca's Grade 4 class. We welcome them all to our Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Catholic School community!
