Hope Squad BannerHope Squad has kicked off at Harlow!  The Hope Squad is a new program to Anna ISD

From their website: "The Hope Squad program is a school-based peer support team that partners with local mental health agencies. Peers select students who are trustworthy and caring individuals to join the Hope Squad. Squad members are trained to watch for at-risk students, provide friendship, identify suicide-warning signs, and seek help from adults.

HOPE Squad members are NOT taught to act as counselors, but are educated on recognizing suicide warning signs and how to properly and respectfully report concerns to an adult."

Our goal for the remainder of the year at Harlow is to spread kindness and have the students see the Hope Squad members around school as good peer role models.  Their are 17 Hope Squad members and each were asked to make a poster about themselves to display for students and visitors to see!  They share things about themselves such as their likes and dislikes, as well as, a little about their families and hobbies so as to be able to connect with some of their peers.

They also have been working on some kindness projects around campus, such as the "Take What you Need" posters and the kindness clothespins that they handed out to students during breakfast.

Abbie Kinder, a 5th grade teacher at Harlow, and Mr. Timpanaro, our counselor, are over the group at Harlow and it's projects.
