Pershing Middle School students Daniella Villarreal, Kyra Hebert, and Nina Merchant Zamorano (pictured, from left) participated in a role-playing activity to learn about resiliency as part of the school’s new enrichment program. The sixth and seventh graders are taking a course that focuses on social and emotional skills using curriculum from the national RethinkEd organization. Each week, teachers provide a lesson on topics like bullying, dealing with trauma, stress management, friendships, and more. Pershing principal Dr. Steven Shetzer welcomes the program to help build a stronger foundation for the students’ well-being in school and as they grow up.
