Success in the Middle Conference
Success In the Middle
The DCSD Prevention & School Culture Department will be hosting the second annual Success In the Middle Conference on April 21, 2017. This free conference is exclusively for students that will be transitioning to Sierra Middle School. The event will be comprised of breakout sessions, fun activities and making new connections.
It is the DCSD Prevention & School Culture Department’s goal to give the students preventative information and strategies that will help them have a successful transition from elementary to middle school. We will be focusing on helping students:
Meet new peers
Access positive activities to get involved with
Take care of themselves (self-advocacy, study habits, time management)
Research indicates that when students feel more connected, there is less bullying, substance abuse, school violence and suicide.
More prevention = Less Intervention
