Barry News

Friday, September 18th 2020

It was an exciting week for us as we began our Character Strong journey with our students during FPC. They were challenged to participate in two separate Student Dares:

1) See Something New (Focused on finding positives in their life)

2) To Do and To Be Lists (Develop routines and set goals around what you want to do and be daily)


Character Strong - Family Dares

I hope you all had a chance as a family to complete the dare from this past week: No Tech Table Time. My family and I have been practicing this for a while now and it truly helps to put all the distractions aside and focus on one another.

I am excited to challenge you all to participate in next week's dare: Game Night. Please see our video below explaining the dare and its importance. Also, please reach out to share experiences you are having with these family dares via phone call, email, or even video recording. I would love to highlight these things on Instagram and our newsletters.
