February Happenings

With January behind us, we begin to look forward to some longer days and the eventual spring weather.  Although we are still in the heart of winter, January proved to be relatively warm for this time of year with only a single modest snowfall.  Weather aside, it was an important month to share the district’s values as evidenced in our Character Education Plan as well as validate the fine instructional work that our teachers have embraced as we begin our partnership with the New Tech Network. 

Indeed, I was pleased to be able to share the District’s Character Education Plan with the Board of Education and larger community at the January 19
th meeting.  Representatives from the Wellness Committee, including Danielle Pack-McCarthy, Lisa Scicluna and our elementary social worker, Renee Curry, helped to provide a thoughtful overview of the rich work that has defined the positive culture and climate at Haldane.  Our Character Plan reflected many months of work that was previously led by our Middle School Principal, Julia Sniffen.  As a result, our Character Plan represents a living document that highlights the numerous programs and initiatives that reflect our collective work in teaching our students the importance of pro-social behavior and a growth mindset.  Most importantly, our Character Education Plan is embedded into our students’ daily experience at Haldane.  Kindness, consideration and respect, words that are stated each morning during our Character Pledge, are reflected in our students’ daily interactions with one another.
