To Whom it May Concern:
I write this letter today to heartily endorse the work of The Music in Me Foundation International and their PeerPositive Intervention Initiative.
Over the past few years The Music in Me Foundation has worked extensively with our school to present valuable and meaningful assemblies for our students on self-esteem and combating bullying. Our school choir was even blessed to be able to collaborate with The Music in Me Foundation on their recent recording of “Unleash Your Super Powers.” We are excited to be participating in The Music in Me Foundation’s upcoming rally on the National Mall as well as their implementation of the PeerPositive Intervention Initiative in our school.
This year the theme at Saint Francis International School is “Make Us Instruments of Peace” and we believe that the PeerPositive Intervention Initiative will help us reach our goal of nurturing students to become peacebuilders who act with kindness! In fact, on September 21st, in conjunction with the visit of Pope Francis to United States, our students will be taking the Kids for Peace Pledge and we believe that the lessons and skills that will be learning through the PeerPositive Intervention Initiative will help them to be able to keep their peace pledge.
I pledge to use my words to speak in a kind way.
I pledge to help others as I go throughout my day.
I pledge to care for our earth with my healing heart and hands. I pledge to respect people in each and every land.
I pledge to join together as we unite the big and small.
I pledge to do my part to create PEACE for one and all.
I strongly encourage you to join Saint Francis International School in supporting the efforts of The Music in Me Foundation. The work of Jane Pinczuk and all of her collaborators is an invaluable resource to educators and students everywhere!
