Harmony at Home Events and Awards


Join us on August 11th at CVAC for an hour of cycling to support Harmony At Home with our Bullying Prevention efforts! As you can see from the CVAC events page each hour has a theme and we have been encouraged to “dress the part”!  According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 21% of students ages 12-18 have experienced bullying. So, CVAC has challenged us to obtain 21 points to ‘break the cycle’ and be entered into their grand prize raffle. 
Within the Harmony At Home Bullying Prevention program, there have been great improvements with many of their school partners. 
  • Fear of bullying among 3rd through 5th grade girls and boys has decreased by 10%
  • Verbal bullying has decreased by 16%
  • Exclusion has decreased by 9%
  • Student reporting to teachers has increased by 60%

Thank you for your support!

In 2018 Harmony At Home was interviewed by Carmel Magazine and we asked to highlight one of our schools, Monterey Park Elementary School, in Salinas City Elementary School District. As you can see from these pictures below, we incorporated student and staff leaders to demonstrate how a partnership of all stakeholders can create a safe school framework to ensure that everyone feels  supported both emotionally and academically.
