Promoting Positive School Climate

PromotingPostiveSchoolClimate-white Logo
Would you like to make your school or educational community a more inviting, welcoming and warm place to learn and work?
Camp Daggett is now offering seminars, trainings and programming focused on the use of the Invitational Education Model in your school district as a resource to help enhance school community and culture.  Additionally, these development opportunities look to answer the question of how WE as students, parents, staff and community members, can make a difference in our schools, on our playing fields, in our homes and community; and ultimately promote a positive learning and community environment.
The Invitational Model addresses school climate issues by:
  • Focusing on the social environment of the school
  • Garnering staff, parental, administrative and student support
  • Helping to enforce established policies and/or improving existing ones
  • Helping staff to consistently enforce standards and policies
  • Helping to introduce tolerance and prevention programs
  • Focusing on implementation plans that continue over time
  • Utilizes a common language (The Full Value Agreement) that results in supporting philosophy and expectations for all students, parents, staff and community members involved.
WHAT IS THE FULL VALUE AGREEMENT?
  • Work as a Team
  • Be Safe:  Physically and Emotionally
  • Speak Up
The Full Value Agreement is the process in which a group agrees to find positive value in the efforts of its members.  This positive value is expressed in encourgement, goal setting, group discussion, confrontation with a positive intent, a spirit of forgiveness, and taking ownership for behavior and outcomes individually and as a group.  In other words, as individuals succeed, the group succeeds; and as the group succeeds, individuals succeed.

The Full Value Agreement additionally represents a common language that can be used within educational organizations and institutions to incorporate character building opportunities (i.e. community, respect, integrity, communication, goal reaching) into the daily representations of our educational philosophies and/or mission statements.

HOW CAN WE INCORPORATE THE FULL VALUE AGREEMENT?
  1. Display the Full Value Agreement in classrooms, hallways, offices, buses, sports fields, etc.
  2. Talk with students, parents, staff, colleagues, administrators, and support staff about what it means to be a team, keep yourself and others safe, and the importance of speaking up, as well as, listening.
  3. Return to the Full Value Agreement when situations arise within our education environments, and utilize the Full Value Agreement to promote a positive school climate and culture.

Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake 2013

Twenty-three kayakers participated in the 5th Annual Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake event on July 20th and 21st, 2013 raising much needed scholarship dollars for students to participate in programs at the Camp Daggett Adventure Center (CDAC).  The annual event continues to grow each year since Karen Marietti, Director of CDAC, made the two day paddle solo five years ago.

This event was supported by donations in support of kayakers,  16 sponsors, a raffle of a kayak donated by The Outfitter of Harbor Springs,  the sale of over 100 dock flags, most to Walloon Lake residents who displayed the Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake dock flags, and general donations for the event.  Over $20,000 was raised this year!  To make this even more special the Doll-Loesel Foundation offered to provide a match of up to $20,000 for Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake!  

Thank you to our Sponsors!
