JMS Selected as a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School®

The following information was sent by Capturing Kids’ Hearts.

Capturing Kids’ Hearts® is excited to announce that a select group of campuses, including Johnston Middle School, have received the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools® award for the 2020-2021 school year.   

CKHHS logo NATIONAL COLOR 2020 2021National Showcase Schools are chosen annually through a rigorous selection process that includes measuring key performance indicators, gathering campus data, and surveying staff and students. The results represent the implementation of CKH processes as well as the culture and climate on each campus. Capturing Kids’ Hearts celebrates campuses where educators are exceeding expectations and creating an environment where students feel safe, connected, and eager to learn. This year’s selection process began with 555 campuses and resulted in 325 awardees.

Many of these schools started the year with all virtual learning and then transitioned to other models including hybrid and asynchronous. It has been a roller coaster of a year for students and teachers but, despite the challenges, our National Showcase Schools have demonstrated what it looks like to consistently implement Capturing Kids’ Hearts processes, including the CKH EXCEL Teaching Model.

Our National Showcase School awardees have found unique ways to continue to build positive learning environments where students are excited to attend, whether virtually or in person. We continue to hear from teachers and school leaders how valuable CKH has been to them as they foster social-emotional learning, relationship-driven culture, and student connectedness on their campuses. Please join us in honoring the campuses awarded for the 2020-2021 school year!
