Be part of the culture change to create safer and kinder schools and communities! Join us September 18 – 22, 2023 for our national call-to-action week.

"Research has proven that Sandy Hook Promise’s Know the Signs programs effectively teach youth and adults how to prevent school violence, shootings, and other harmful acts. Students and educators learn to identify at-risk behaviors and intervene to get help. These early-prevention measures empower everyone to help keep schools and communities safe."

Brenda Crenshaw, founder of The Crenshaw School, is now embarking on a new journey as owner and founder of Crenshaw Academy.

  • Crenshaw said she continues her philosophy of engendering respectful and collaborative relationships throughout the community, at home and at school.

Like adults, children face a great deal of stress in their lives, especially during the school year. And as much as we want to tell them that we understand their stress because we went through the same thing, times change, and our experiences are not the same. 

We can empathize and try to understand, but that’s the best we can offer when comparing our stressful childhood events surrounding the school to theirs.
