Teachers and law enforcement personnel in Door and Kewaunee Counties came together last week to put more focus on the learning experience of their local students. Teachers from five of the peninsula’s seven school districts joined the sheriff’s departments at Kewaunee Grade School for COREMatters training. The CoreMATTERS Project is a multi-dimensional program focusing on social-emotional learning, empathy, and respect through a variety of different activities including Tae Kwon Do. Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski is excited to be among the first in the state to help institute the COREMatters Project curriculum at local schools.
Joski says students will be able to participate in some of the program’s activities through their normal physical education time.
