Triad Middle School is beginning a new project, Let Grow, to offer students the opportunity to grow as individuals. The purpose of the project is to foster independence for the students in grades 5 through 8. Essentially, students complete a project outside of school that enables them to take one step closer to independence. "Simply by being independent they are analyzing situations, evaluating consequences, and overcoming obstacles. Independence leads to new problem-solving, resilience—and joy."
In order to keep student interest, they would like to offer a drawing for a prize bi-weekly or monthly for each grade. Support from local businesses in the form of a small gift card would be an amazing opportunity to promote how this community supports schools. If you are would like to contribute to this project please contact Middle School Guidance Counselor Sarah Haggard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
