Review for Harper for Kids, San Francisco, CA, USA
We have had the pleasure of working with Harper for Kids at Lyndon B. Johnson Elementary for several years now and it just keeps getting better and better each year! As a physical education teacher I love it but it is actually a roadmap to being a better person (your Personal Best) without direct mention of athletics! Harper for Kids have provided world-class athletes, artists, musicians, tv/news personalities, etc. to provide insight on how they became successful in their particular field. They talk to our students about the Pyramid and how it can guide them to their Personal Best. The guests along with Tim and Peanut bring so much energy and enthusiasm to the student presentations, it definitely is contagious! I really enjoy how we use the Principles as a Word of the Month leading up to the top of the Pyramid, which is Personal Best. We want our students to be their Best and this program is truly helping guide them in that direction. It starts from the top with our Principle Fisher discussing the Word of the Month and reading from Inch and Miles, the book written by Peanut Harper. If you are looking for a great Character Education program, look no further, this one is fantastic!
