2017 Asset Building Classrooms Training
On Thursday, May 18, students, parents and teachers from the Southington Public School System gathered to be a part of our annual ABC Champion/Asset Building Training. All 12 schools in town were represented as our Asset Building Leadership Team explained all about STEPS, the Asset Building Classrooms initiative and how each person can get involved. We are proud that our school district is part of a Community-Wide movement to develop and increase assets in our youth. By building assets in our youth, we are able to give them the tools they need that will make them less likely to engage in risk-taking behaviors.
Our ABC champions that led the way were:
A huge thank you to these leaders. This annual training would not have been possible without their hard work and dedication. We simply refer to them as 'Champions' because they have embraced the 40 Developmental Assets and have successfully implemented not only the assets, but the culture into their schools. But we know they aren't just champions - they are super heros without capes!
