Peaceful Schools Program

Creating respectful, safe and compassionate climates for learning.

What is The Rotary Peaceful Schools Program?

"PSP" for short, is a program created by Rotary District 5450, The Conflict Center, and Operation Respect.  This program has been designed as one tool for a Rotary Club to use in building an ongoing relationship with the local elementary school as well as to strengthen their Interact Club relationship.

This program is delivered to:

   * To 1st & 2nd grade students

   * in a series of short sessions

   * by Pacific High School Students

The basic structure of the program consists of each volunteer reading a pre-selected book to a group of 3-5 students, making reference to and discussing Rotary's guiding principles simplified in PSP's Four Awesome Questions.  After completing the book, the class comes back together to pariticpate in activities and songs related to the lessons learned.

Why is PSP Good for our schools?

The program assists children in learning skills necessary for:

    Understanding and managing emotions

    Setting Positive Goals

    Feeling and showing empathy for others

    Establishing and maintaining positive relationships

    Making responsible decisions

Before you say or do something, ask yourself:

(Four Awesome Questions)

      Is it TRUE?

      Is it FAIR to everyone?

      Will it help build FRIENDSHIPS?

      Will it be good for EVERYONE?
