Irving Middle School Teaches about Virtue and Empathy


In fall 2017 we partnered with Irving Middle School to begin supporting their efforts in promoting awareness and cultivation of the Institute's nine virtues.

Irving Middle schoolers recognize each other for showing empathySince that time, Principal Jonathan Atchley and his core team of teachers and staff have continued to develop a culture of virtue in the school.

In recent weeks, Ms. Wendy Trott, a librarian at Irving Middle School and member of the core team, has been promoting books on virtue for teachers and students as part of an effort to encourage reading.

Irving students are also learning about the importance of empathy and recognizing it in each other.
