Project Need Our Lady Huskies chose “Steps to Success” as a tool that encourages our students and community to focus on 3 key areas:
Our team felt it was imperative to work to provide motivational tools along with the inclusion of technology to assist with increased student achievement.
Fitness: The goal at Robert E. Peary Middle School is to promote physical activity at least 3 times a week. It began in our Physical Education classes with promoting improvements in our fitness testing. Our staff collaborated with Girls Build LA to promote the 5 components of fitness: Students developed strategies each week to improve on their fitness levels.
Self-Esteem:The need to create an atmosphere of positive affirmations while decreasing the Bullying stigma was an emphasis. The team created a “Peace Walk” in solidarity as students chose a pledge to commence at the duration of the event.
Goal-Setting/Nutrition: The need to develop strategies and tools that are tangible was improvement to our program. Students and Faculty designed plans for their chosen goals and monitored through the use of social media and email.
