Three students were selected to win a prize for completing and returning the Screen Free Activity Log. Second-graders Harlow Tyrell and Mia Vetere, and kindergartner Thomas O’Hagan were among the students chosen to win a prize. These students dedicated the week to spending time off of their electronic devices and completing activities such as reading, coloring, riding bikes, dancing and spending time with family. 

Centre Students Focus on Positivity

Students at Centre Avenue School shared positive thoughts about themselves, their peers, school faculty and family members during the school’s second annual Positive Post-it Day on May 16.

The activity was organized by Centre Avenue’s Positive School Culture Committee as a way for students to share kindness with each other. The youngsters were given a variety of colored Post-its to distribute. One was given to each student so they could share a positive message about themselves. They also wrote a kind message to a peer, a staff member and to someone at home. In addition, teachers shared a kind message with each of their students.    

According to teacher Kirsten Miolan, the activity was expanded this year to include a staff member and a family member to connect those individuals with classroom learning. 

“It was a huge success,” Mrs. Miolan said of the activity. “The students felt really empowered.”
