Polk Street School held its “Better, Not Bigger” workshop for kindergartners from April 5-6. The workshop, which is being offered to one grade-level per month, is designed to educate students on the importance of being solution-focused and responsible decision-makers and striving to make challenging situations “better” instead of “bigger.”

The workshops are facilitated by Principal Gilbert Torossian, Assistant Principal John Trotta, Social Worker Christina Luca and School Psychologist Kaitlin Darmiento.

To encourage students to respect themselves and others, Polk Street School is hosting a Radiate Respect activity throughout the month of March. “Respect” is the school’s character virtue for February and March.

Working with their Buddy Classes, an older grade paired with a younger grade, students brainstormed ways they show respect at school. Then, they wrote some of their ideas on a paper sunray. The sunrays were also decorated with images depicting respect, a book that was read in class or drawings. Each Buddy Class has been adding their sunray to the sun displayed outside the cafeteria.
