Stephens students recently featured in the news!

"Kindness. It’s one of the earliest things we learn as children. Even though the idea is elementary, people around the globe, including the Dalai Lama, are looking to research being done in Madison to understand the positive qualities of life – kindness, compassion, and happiness." Stephens students were recently featured in the article "Mental Hygiene - Madison researcher uses modern neuroscience to study kindness, compassion & happiness" on NBC 15. Read the full story.

We want to hear from you. Join us to give your input on the Behavior Education Plan

As you may have seen in the last family newsletter, MMSD is in the process of considering several adjustments to our district's Behavior Education Plan. As a district, we believe in the importance of family voice in decision making. By taking a step back to improve our policies and systems, we are hoping ensure we have the right supports for implementation.  

We’ve learned a great deal about behavior support and what it takes to make sure every classroom is a safe and supportive one. We’ve gathered feedback over the years, and we want to continue gathering feedback and ideas from you as we move forward. Please consider attending one of the following input sessions, facilitated by district staff. To request interpretation, please email mmsdnews@madison.k12.wi.us or call 663-1879.
