Community Fund grantee organization Healthy NewsWorks has launched a new set of lessons called “Kind Kids” for children ages 5 to 8 who are enrolled in their “Cub Reporter” program.

First and second graders are learning about how to be a good friend, why adequate sleep is important, and how to reduce stress. In all, more than 125 reporters in six classrooms at Cole Manor Elementary School in Norristown and Laura Waring School in Philadelphia took part in the virtual lessons in January. They will contribute articles and illustrations to their school’s health newspapers.
