Connectors Training at WHS

Community gets involved in improving school environment

 

by Katarina Swendrowski, , - January 8, 2018

Today Home Page presents a look at the first Connect Four Club training. Connect Four is a freshman mentoring and peer support club at Wellsboro Area High School. It is advised by social studies teacher Sharon Mohrand Spanish teacher Heather Steinbacher. The club primarily helps freshman and new students adjust to the new school and environment. Connectors also help look out for students who may be going through issues or show signs of different behavior.

At the training a variety of issues Connectors should be aware of or may face such as what the job of a Connector is, social diversity, cyberbullying, healthy relationships, drug use and abuse, disability awareness, self-injury/self-abuse, eating disorders and body image, and finally mental health awareness, were discussed along with explained. School administrators and representatives from the Wellsboro Police Department, HAVEN of Tioga County, Tioga County Sheriff’s Department, Autism support, CONCERN, UPMC, and Inner Compass all came to speak about these topics.

We interviewed members of the Connect Four senior committee to gain more information about Connectors. Kaylee Doane explained to us the role of a Connect Four member. Zoe Iseri took us through the purpose and events of the training. Ariana Carleton gave us examples of how Connectors create a positive and engaging school environment. Luna Alexander told us why she believes Connect Four Clubs will benefit other school districts.
