Principal Erin North at Vera Ralya Elementary in Haslett, Michigan, is passionate about empowering all students to be their best selves. Her focus is supporting the whole student — from educational to emotional needs. Class Catalyst has been an indispensable tool in allowing her to create an environment in which students feel heard and understood.
The impact and success of her actions haven’t gone unnoticed.
Murphy Elementary recently adopted her strategy and now over 760+ students are benefiting from the program.
To extend her support beyond the classroom, Erin and her dedicated staff host family events in district neighborhoods. These events provide family dinners, a Class Catalyst certificate via the Lifetouch’s platform which includes a photo of their student and valuable at-home mindful resources.
Erin encourages parents to hang their Class Catalyst Certificates someplace visible so families can easily access mindful practices at home daily with a scan of the QR code.
“By having these resources at your disposal, you’re equipped with valuable tools to navigate challenges and foster well-being at home.”
— Erin North,
Principal, Haslett Schools, Michigan
This simple act of providing families with readily accessible resources allowed Erin to make the connection between school and home while further empowering students to foster agency, self-awareness, and mindfulness.
Across the two events, Erin personally shared the certificates with over 120 families — even with those who were unable to attend the event.
Class Catalyst empowered Erin to provide mindful support not only to her students but her whole community.
