    The Center for Community Justice is trying to erase the words "at risk" and replace them with "at promise", in regards to teens who have made bad decisions when it comes to emotional expression. They want to shape these young people into adults who are responsible with their emotional expression so that they not only avoid making impulsive decisions that they may regret, but that they also transform their community through their positive actions.

    Gardening has been taught at Hollywood Elementary in Stevensville, Michigan for years. However in this day and age, educators at Hollywood Elementary find that it is even more vital to teach children where their food comes from. They also like to teach their students the importance of also taking care of the earth while doing so. They believe gardening is an essential life skill, and teaching students the basic sets them on the right path to career and health choices.
