Hazelwood Elementary School counselor receives "Bright Ideas" grant
Nicole Conner, the counselor at Hazelwood Elementary School, received a “Bright Ideas” grant for a school-wide conflict resolution curriculum called “Kelso’s Choice."
This curriculum teaches students to use choices and differentiate between problems they can handle on their own and those requiring adult intervention. Students will also be empowered with skills to make, and become accountable for, their own choices.
Ken Thomas with Haywood EMC, one of the sponsors of the grant, presented the check to Nicole Conner and several students at Hazelwood.
"This curriculum will be a great addition to 'The Leader in Me' initiative started at Hazelwood during this current school year and is a great example of learning Habit #1: Be Proactive," said Conner.
