December Celebrated Role Models at JFK!

Last month, the asset promoted throughout the Southington school system was Positive Adult Role Models. JFK middle school took December's asset and put an interesting twist on how to build it! And what does it mean to be a positive adult role model? Parent(s), guardian(s) and other adults model positive and responsible behavior for others.

Last month, the asset promoted throughout the Southington school system was Positive Adult Role Models. JFK middle school took December's asset and put an interesting twist on how to build it! And what does it mean to be a positive adult role model? Parent(s), guardian(s) and other adults model positive and responsible behavior for others.

During homeroom, students received a small yellow slip of paper to give to any adult that works in the Kennedy building that they felt modeled positive and responsible behavior. Students had one month to give their coupon to a great staff member on the Kennedy team.

At the end of the month, students in SSR wrote about an adult in their life who modeled positive and responsible behaviors. The person had to be someone the student had interacted with in real life (no internet, movie or sports players). The write ups are now displayed in the hallways of the school on bulletin boards and one sample is also posted on the ABC bulletin board in the Municipal Center outside of the Youth Services department.

One student wrote about her 5th grade teacher, Jessica Bruenn and about her exemplary work within the community.

Thanks JFK for your great ABC work — we can't wait to see what's in store for January's asset: Plannng and Decision Making!
