Why Harmony?

What is Sanford Harmony? Imagine a classroom where students are empowered to connect, communicate, collaborate, embrace diversity, and resolve conflict. Welcome to Sanford Harmony—a social-emotional program that builds strong classroom relationships and supportive learning communities.

The goal of Harmony is to integrate the evidenced-based strategies of Meet Up and Buddy Up and grade level lessons and activities into classroom schedules — and promote the development of today’s students into respectful, compassionate, and caring adults for the future.

Harmony is a CASEL SELect Program aligned with Common Core Standards, state, district, and national initiatives.
