It’s All About Friendship

Last Thursday evening, the TEAM School community was thrilled to welcome world-renowned friendship expert, Dana Kerford to the school. Dana led parents and children through a series of activities in order to help students learn the language of friendship so that they can effectively navigate social interactions. Parents, children, and teachers learned four friendship facts:

  • No friendship or relationship is perfect.
  • Every friendship is different.
  • Trust and respect are the most important qualities of a friendship.
  • Friendships change…and that’s okay

Dana highlighted the importance of nurturing healthy relationships. She compared friendships to food. Although chips and candy are enticing, like unhealthy relationships, they fail to fuel a healthy body. Children learned that healthy relationships, like healthy foods, make us stronger and more energized. We are thrilled that some students are already using Dana’s tips and strategies!
