EMS Empathy Week

Empathy is a skill that anyone can work on. It is the ability to step into the shoes of another person, aiming to understand their feelings and perspectives, and to use that understanding to guide our actions. Ms. Miller and the Evergreen ASB and Leadership students feel that we can use a week to focus on Empathy, aimed at continuing to improve our school culture and how we treat one another. http://evergreenptsa.org/Article/View/Empathy-Week-April-24th-28th
