PeaceBuilders logoIn 2007, SPPS launched the PeaceBuilders program.  SPPS Staff has been trained on how to implement PeaceBuilders into daily life.  Each morning, students recite the PeaceBuilders pledge.

PeaceBuilders is a comprehensive community-based program that shifts the entire organizational climate to a peaceful, productive and safe place for children, parents and the community. In the school setting, PeaceBuilders increases academic achievement by allowing teachers to spend more time teaching and less time disciplining. In all settings, the program creates a peaceful environment by increasing positive, respectful, thoughtful behavior, while decreasing violence and disruptive behavior.

I am a PeaceBuilder.  I pledge:

  • To notice and speak up about hurts I have caused
  • To right wrongs
  • To help others

I will build peace at home, at school,
and in my community each day.
