Assistant Principal Matt Pascale Leads Positivity Training for Webututck Staff
The Positivity Project
Over the summer, careful planning and research was undertaken to create a program that successfully addresses Social/Emotional Learning. The Positivity Project, a new Social/Emotional Learning (SEL) initiative, will roll out in all schools this year, led by Assistant Principal, Matthew Pascale. The Positivity Project is a nationally recognized, holistic approach that seeks to develop an open mindset through five practices, which include: recognizing the good in others, understanding how your words and actions effect on others, supporting others when they struggle, cheering on others when they succeed and giving others your full attention. The initiative will train and involve faculty and staff throughout the district.
Students on all grade levels will receive explicit instruction. On the elementary level, students will have something tangible to engage them each day during their morning meeting. On the high school and middle school levels, students will participate in advisory periods daily to facilitate character development, strengthen communication skills, and improve the overall school environment.
Webutuck Central Schools are “Off and Running!”
Off and running! Webutuck’s first day of classes was filled with new experiences for some, and a welcome back to familiar faces for others. Our new school year is off to a great start and we look forward to an exciting year ahead.
