The PTA is proud to support Foster City Elementary School by contributing toward the continuation of the Soul Shoppe program that was a huge success in 2016-2017 and 2017-2018.
Soul Shoppe's mission is to create safe learning environments that bring forth a culture of compassion, connection and curiosity - eliminating bullying at the roots. Their innovative, interactive and highly effective programs give the entire school community an EXPERIENCE of empathy, transforming not only our behaviors, but the very ways we see each other.
Soul Shoppe programs support kids by giving conflict resolution tools that allow them to support each other as allies. They have reached more than 470,000 students. In addition to working with students, Soul Shoppe supports the entire school community through the creation and facilitation of dynamic staff-development trainings that give teachers the necessary tools to foster academic growth and social-emotional learning, as well as parent workshops and resources.
