School receives $500 Grief-Sensitive Schools Initiative grant
Thomas Jefferson High School (TJHS) has been awarded a $500 Grief-Sensitive Schools Initiative grant to help equip educators and other school personnel to support grieving students. A special check was presented today by Mrs. April Bailey of New York Life to TJHS Administrators and Counselors. The Grief-Sensitive Schools Initiative – a pioneering effort that utilizes New York Life’s workforce to help equip local schools to care for the grieving students in their midst – is an extension of the work of the Coalition to Support Grieving Students, a collaboration among leading K-12 professional organizations, to develop and deliver best-in-class grief support resources to educators.
