Hello Wayland-Cohocton Elementary Families!!

Hello and let me introduce myself, I am Justin Stuck and I am incredibly excited to take over Mr. Button's duties at Wayland and Cohocton Elementary buildings. I have a 4th and 5th grader at home in Naples, and my amazing wife is a 4th grade teacher here also! Some of my pre-pandemic hobbies were playing old-man soccer, frisbee golf, and raising chickens. While I can't play soccer right now; frisbee golf is a great low-risk activity and the chickens will be up and running this Spring. It has been a joy to visit classrooms and meet so many students this last week and my heart is filled with the possibilities of the work in front of us. If you ever have any questions please reach out so we can connect.

Making Social Emotional Wellness a Priority

Emotional Wellness Toolkit

How you feel can affect your ability to carry out everyday activities, your relationships, and your overall mental health. How you react to your experiences and feelings can change over time. Emotional wellness is the ability to successfully handle life’s stresses and adapt to change and difficult times.

December’s Habit of Focus- Put First Things First:

Habit 3: A Family Exercise in Putting First Things First

Habit 3®: Put First Things First, is a habit about priorities. We all juggle multiple hats in our lives, whether it be professional or personal, we need to develop habits that help us manage the day-to-day. Habit 3 talks in-depth about “Big Rocks” and “Little Rocks” in our lives.


“Big Rocks” are the most important things for you to do, such as spending time with your family or getting an education. “Little Rocks” are the less important things for you to do, such as watching T.V., or aimlessly searching the Internet.


So, whether Habit 3 is new to you, or engraved in your memory, let’s take a moment to reflect on this habit. For me, Habit 3 means making time for my family. As you watch the video clip, take the time to reflect on what Habit 3 means to you. What do Habit 1 and Habit 2 mean to you?
