(Savannah schools) St. Andrew’s designated a Grief Sensitive School

Thursday, February 25th, 2021

St. Andrew's School mental health Savannah Chatham County

St. Andrew’s School Receives Grant from New York Life Foundation

St. Andrew’s has been designated a “Grief-Sensitive School” by the New York Life Foundation, receiving a $500 Grief-Sensitive Schools Initiative grant to help create a bereavement support plan and encourage ongoing staff development in order to better support its grieving students.

The St. Andrew’s counseling department used this grant to purchase Kimochis, a social and emotional learning curriculum that helps younger students manage grief and other hard-to-have feelings. The program is designed to give children the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to recognize and manage their emotions, demonstrate caring and concern for others, establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and handle challenging situations constructively.

“My favorite part of the Kimochis Early Childhood Curriculum is watching students interact with the plush characters,” said School Counselor Elizabeth Bush. “Each character has a unique personality and temperament which helps the students express their own feelings.”

The Grief-Sensitive Schools Initiative – a pioneering effort that utilizes New York Life’s workforce to help equip local schools to care for the grieving students in their midst – is an extension of the work of the Coalition to Support Grieving Students, a collaboration among leading K-12 professional organizations to develop and deliver best-in-class grief support resources to educators.

St. Andrew’s is a private, independent, International Baccalaureate World School inspiring young people age 3 through grade 12.
