Toxic Positivity Has No Place in Schools (Opinion)

“Toxic positivity has no place in schools,” the author shares. “If we stay grounded by starting from where we are and doing what we can with the skills and resources we have, there is no need for shame or heroism.”

Educators can’t do everything, but we can do some things, writes district leader Cherisse Campbell.

Resources for Promoting Social and Emotional Learning at Home

Edutopia shares a few great tips to help parents/caregivers integrate #SEL into their homes. We love the idea of providing questions students can ask their parents/caregivers.

Providing families of students in preschool to second grade with strategies to bolster SEL skills can also strengthen family bonds.

📚It’s All About Books and Baseball⚾️!

Everybody Wins DC in partnership with Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy are proud to unveil a new Little Free Library Read in Color (RiC) library. The library, located on the campus’ All-Star Pavilion includes fully stocked shelves lined with books highlighting diverse characters, elevating marginalized voices, promoting equality, inclusion + social justice.

The evening featured a book distribution and note writing activity led by #EWDC, an interactive story time reading of “Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf” by Monisa at DC Public Library and baseball sessions as part of the organization’s Books and Baseball early childhood development program.

Thank you to the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy for your commitment to bringing diverse books to Ward 7!

Calls to Ban Books by Black Authors Are Increasing Amid Critical Race Theory Debates

Despite opposition from the ALA, books continue to be banned by school and public libraries across the U.S.

Most recently, due to disinformation concerning CRT, books by Black authors or about the Civil Rights Movement were removed from public libraries.

Books about race and the experiences of Black Americans are being challenged by parents who claim they make white children feel uncomfortable.

In support of the Book Project and the Little Free Library Read in Color initiative, volunteers from the Manor House Chapter NSDAR gathered at the Southwest Library(DC Public Library) as a part of their day of service.

These volunteers prepared over 200 diverse books for distribution, and wrote a personal, encouraging note to go with each and every one. They powered through this book preparation in record time—must have been the Halloween music playlist keeping them motivated.

Thanks so much for your support!

About Everybody Wins DC

It doesn’t matter what neighborhood a child is from, what his/her test scores are, or what their parents do for a living. Every child faces challenges. Every child needs support.

Everybody Wins DC (EWDC) helps children thrive by building connections through reading. When children share a joyful reading experience with someone who cares, they build the skills, confidence, and curiosity to help them succeed in the classroom and beyond.

The idea behind our mission is simple and straightforward, yet it brings about powerful change: by connecting a child with a caring adult over a book, everyone’s lives get better - Everybody wins!
