All Olympia Staff kicked of the year at OHS on Monday morning. The message from Dr. Wise and team was to ensure we are focusing on essential skills with students, including social emotional skills, and to use a strengths based approach to our work with students. All teachers and aides participated in a lock box challenge where they answered questions about social emotional learning and PBIS. The first place team (Nothing but Net) was excited by their Moe's gift card and their class cover (supplied by their building principal). The second place team (Team Sparta) was close on the heals of Nothing but Net but did place second out of 20 teams.
This interactive activity provided the foundation for all the social emotional learning skills we will focus on this year.
