Information for Senior Parents
Communication: part 2...The Life Skills students were divided into two groups. One group was secretly told to make a fist and to open it under only one circumstance. That circumstance was that the person in the other group "communicated" to him/her that he/she would like him/her to open his/her fist. The second group was simply told to get the other person's fist open. Needless to say, some people were fairly aggressive in their attempts to open fists! Afterwards, they learned the importance of simply communicating to others their needs, which in this case was to simply open their fists.
Good communication is a skill that will prove to be invaluable to these students! During Life Skills, we learned the importance of communicating effectively with some fun games! The students were required to ask 3 questions that could be answered with a yes or no in order to find out "who they were" and then they had to find the second half of their pair!
Mrs. Lisa Davis, Senior Vice President at Citizens Bank, wrapped up the Financial Literacy section for the Life Skills class on Tuesday. She presented a wonderful budgeting activity for our 8th grade students. They learned about checking and savings accounts, the importance of good credit scores, and budgets!
One of the FACS classes had a little fun with a communication review today. Only the person blindfolded could touch the puzzle pieces, the rest gave directions. They quickly remembered the importance of tone, volume, as well as clear, concise, and calm!
Concord's Project Prevent Next Generation Group, Pirate Influencers, took a trip to the Museum of Discovery and had their Summit at Ron Robinson Theater.
