This summer I had the opportunity to study at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education. A component of that program was Project Adventure (a group confidence building program). Project Adventure allowed for great intrapersonal thinking and team building ideas. It was wonderful to bring the knowledge gained from my time this summer to Pine Glen School. I related my experiences with Project Adventure to Ms. May, Ms. Govoni and Mrs. Nicholas in the fall of 2010. They agreed that this would be a fantastic program for the students at Pine Glen School.
I am pleased to announce that the Burlington Education Fund (BEF) has awarded Ms. May (Guidance Counselor), Ms. Govoni (Physical Education Teachers) and Mrs. Nicholas (Physical Education Teacher) a grant to implement Project Adventure. This grant will allow collaboration between the guidance and physical education departments to empower students and develop strategies for conflict resolution.
