Macdonough School selected for Positive School Climate Workshop!

Young Audiences of Connecticut has selected Macdonough School to host a Positive School Climate Workshop for our fourth grade students.  Cyd Slotoroff, a professional singer-songwriter will present her acclaimed workshop: Creating Community: Appreciating Differences on Thursday, June 7th.

Creating Community: Appreciating Differences
Drawing on the power of contemporary folk music, Cyd sings true songs about young people's experiences and solicits discussion drawn from feelings and issues in the songs. In a small group forum, students talk honestly about how they treat each other - about friendship, popularity, status, and the pressures to fit in. Cyd encourages students to share and develop strategies for taking a stand for themselves and others to create a more safe and respectful community.
