Commissioned by CYPRESS, H.E.A.R.T.–Helping Everyone with Anti-Bullying, Respect and Tolerance–is an original collection of classroom activities created by area educators. The online curriculum contains over a hundred lessons and activities, appropriate for every grade and age.

The name truly captures the goal of the H.E.A.R.T. Project…to give children, parents, caregivers, school staff and youth group leaders the skills they need to build respect and relationships…and prevent bullying.

CYPRESS encourages teachers to use these materials in the classroom, but they are also appropriate for parents, caregivers and other people who work with children. Some of the activities are designed to take a few minutes, perhaps at the beginning of the day, while others are a little more involved.

CYPRESS worked with the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation and other area schools to coordinate and sponsor the creation of the H.E.A.R.T. Project.
