Belonging is a central message of Christ. To belong is to feel secure. Without belonging, we are alone. We know students crave feeling accepted and valued and they need strong connections with their families, teachers and peers. Research confirms caring
relationships with educators motivate students to engage in the learning process. Belonging is our primary human need. Beyond food and shelter, nothing promotes human flourishing like having people and a place of belonging. In Christ, we can find
true belonging: True belonging is being fully known and being fully loved. We long to belong, and so do our students.
