Meyer Middle School Character Education Grant

Meyer Middle School has been awarded a St. Croix Valley Vibrant Community Grant for $6000.

The grant will expand the school’s already recognized character education program. After two years of COVID’s impact on student mental health and well-being, school counselors Samantha Dusek and Jordan Seifert looked for ways to support all students in the school. They found a solution in the CharacterStrong Curriculum.

“This curriculum helps create an environment where teachers can proactively teach social and emotional learning skills to all students, while building strong classroom relationships.”

The RFCF is an affiliate of the St. Croix Valley Foundation which contributes to the Vibrant Communities grant that paid for the staff training and purchase of this program.
