THE YANI PROGRAM
The Yani program is a year-long, early childhood character education curriculum designed to give students the tools to be successful socially and emotionally in the classroom, increase self-efficacy and improve attitudes towards school, all in service of increasing academic achievement. Yani serves as a constant reminder of social consciousness and an example of how to appropriately cope with the world around us in a productive and positive way using positive ideals as strategies to overcome obstacles in her own life and to reach personal success.
(Prepared, Attentive, Thoughtful and Hardworking)
"The Yani Program has gone well in my classroom. Scholars are excited to be prepared and attentive...it is a great program!" - Mr. McCormick
"Yani influences our behavioral redirections throughout the day in a positive way. When students earn table points at their tables throughout the day, they are earning them because they are showing the prepared, attentive, thoughtful, or hardworking attitudes just like Yani!"
- Ms. Macolino
