LHS Day 1 Reflection

Thank you again for your energy and effort toward raising the temperature of school climate at Levelland High School. During the course of the day, we conducted a series of self-assessments (e.g., thinking styles, PIG personality profile) to help better understand our individual strengths, discussed and modeled the 5 characteristics of 212º Climate (i.e., Authenticy, Faith, Belief, Perseverance, and Kindness), and participated in a series of team building simulation designed to promote decision-making, problem-solving, and communications. We finished the day by developing a Mission Statement surrounding the 5 characteristics of 212º Climate
