"Happy thoughts and positive thinking, in general, support brain growth, as well as the generation and reinforcement of new synapses, especially in your prefrontal cortex (PFC), which serves as the integration center of all of your brain-mind functions."  --Psychology Today

As we transition into a mentally challenging part of the school year, we want to help you renew a prevention-based approach.  Typically, this time of year is stressful for many reasons; we’re stressed about assessments, weary of behaviors and worn down by the academic expectations (AND it’s cold).  We know that getting in front of behavior (EARLY INTERVENTION) will help us stay on track emotionally, increase student partnership, send a firm consistent/caring message to students and benefit our brains as well.  TRIAGE is a gateway to promoting happy thoughts and positive thinking for our students.  If we care enough to talk through their plan before an issue has occurred, we’re taking an intentional step to generating and reinforcing new synapses in the brain while modeling the GOALS FOR LIFE.
