She Has WINGS
Summerville High School teacher Karen Parker showed kindness and compassion to a foster care student in her classroom, inspiring him to make a difference, and inspiring us to give her WINGS!
Solving Conflicts Peacefully!
As kids begin to get older and embrace their opinions, they are likely to encounter conflicts with others. It's important to prepare kids for facing adversity by helping them to understand what causes disagreements and how to handle conflict.
Play is a medium through which children explore, learn, connect and joyfully engage with the surrounding world, and this video from Life is good is...GOOD!
How WINGS works effectively with others
The new academic year is well underway with students, teachers, administrators and parents once again working hard to make a difference in the world.
Pria is a 4th grader at Chicora School of Communications and in Ms. Amar's Pelicans Nest. WINGS staffers say that where Pria used to let negative things get her down, she now better manages her frustration and focuses on positive things.

"The lessons we teach the kids are only absorbed by them if we model them, so serving with WINGS really makes you step it up as a person."
