After school, on Wednesday, March 16, staff from the Winter Park High School (WPHS) Ninth Grade Center, joined together to celebrate.  They celebrated their support person and teacher of the year.  They celebrated three quarters of collaboration, teamwork, and dedication.  Caitlin McDonald, WPHS Ninth Grade Center CHILL Counselor, gave a presentation about stress management and happiness.  54 of the WPHS Ninth Grade Center’s 65 staff members participated in this non-mandatory meeting / presentation / celebration (even during the week grades were due!).  Together, the staff shared laughs, stories, and positive messages.

Congratulations to the staff and administration at the WPHS Ninth Grade Center for celebrating these important character traits and in turn, demonstrating healthy and happy behaviors for their students.  Healthy schools are truly a team effort.
