As the new school year is soon to start, staff and faculty in schools around Upper Michigan have been preparing for their students to return to the classroom. With this preparation
came two days of professional development for some area schools, including L’Anse and Baraga, with teachers, support staff and administrators present as Capturing Kids’ Hearts (CKH) Training showed them how to connect to their students and create better bonds. The training, which is sponsored by the Portage Health Foundation (PHF), helps those working in the K-12 school environment and students build relationships of safety and trust.
