As the beginning of a new calendar year is upon us , it is the perfect time to reset and introduce (or re-introduce) goal setting into your students routines.

Peekapak’s ‘Rise and Thrive’ Goal Setting Challenge is designed to empower students to set SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) goals for the year ahead. Not only will it help students of all ages develop essential goal-setting skills, but it will also encourage them to take actionable steps toward achieving their dreams.


  1. Use a SMART goal template to hand out to students during class time(download Peekapak’s template here).
    • Optional: Teach students that in order to persevere and have grit, you need to have specific, measureable, actionable, realistic goals with a deadline to achieve them and a plan to overcome obstacles 
  2. Have students write or draw at least one SMART goal they want to achieve over the month of January.
    • They can choose goals related to academics, personal growth, hobbies, or any area of their life they wish to improve.
  3. Submit your students’ goal creations to Peekapak by February 1, 2024
