This is the image for the news article titled P2 of the Week: Supporting others when they struggle
Under the guiding principles of our districtwide initiative, the Positivity Project, the #PositivityinAction mindset is a top priority. This week we will focus on the character strength of SUPPORTING OTHERS WHEN THEY STRUGGLE.
People with the character strength of supporting others when they struggle means that when they see other people struggle, they help them if they can.
Assistant Principals Dr. Stevens and Mr. Baalaer, with support from Dean of Students Mr. Puvalowski and Mr. Gaffigan are known for the implementation of disciplinary actions, but they serve in a much larger capacity than this negative generalization.
Building relationships with students and staff is Priority #1. They are the voice behind a supportive phone call, the patience behind a tough conversation that explores the whys of a behavior, and the perspective we all need to experience when sharing important information. In addition, they constantly point out successes, focusing on praise rather than failure. This empathic approach is a proven method to inspire others to see their own potential.
Thank you, Dr. Stevens, Mr. Baalaer, Mr. Puvalowski, and Mr. Gaffigan, for the scheduled meetings, messages on Schoology, and quest for zero disciplinary issues. You are the difference!
Making children aware that every one of them has all 24 character strengths, provides the foundation for genuine self-confidence grounded in self-awareness and develops an #OtherPeopleMatter mindset.
