Fired Up Fridays!
On December 14, 2012 our country was saddened by the Sandy Hook Elementary School travesty.
Angry, heartbroken and frustrated with some media opinions expressed about our kids today, Mike organized a philosophy to make our young people feel good again.
“Fired Up Fridays” is a program that celebrates the “Catch “Em Being Good” philosophy and reinforces to our young people that THEY WERE MADE GOOD. Lessons address character traits, community involvement, mental health strategies, positive school culture, and more.
