"I really enjoyed the conference with Dr. Hinduja. There were several things I took away from the conference, but one being the most prominent is: Sharing the positive stories. We have many positive stories at FHHS and I know that by sharing these, our climate will continue to improve and students will learn the “Howell Way.” Some others include the variety of preventions (such as Lock it down day, Delete day, Positive Referrals, Decoding your Digital Footprint, etc). I also felt like some of the things we plan to do this year or have done in the past (i.e. pledges, signage throughout the building) were validated as effective prevention strategies and we’ll keep doing those things."
