Here, we share news about our accomplishments and the achievements of children in our community who are affiliated with the Grow to Care Lab. 

Dr. Peplak's niece, Aveya, received the peacemaking award at school!

"Aveya is a kind and compassionate student with a gentle heart. She consistently makes an effort to treat others with respect no matter the situation. Aveya shows empathy by thinking outside of herself. She tires to understand why others may act the way they do. She brings peace to her classmates by modeling inclusiveness, kindness, and forgiveness."

The work we do at our lab aims to foster kindness and peacemaking in schools, and we love seeing kindness being recognized by teachers. 

Way to go, Aveya!
