The high school invited the 8th graders over for our Character Education Program B.E.S.T. Today’s focus was on “B for Befriend only those who bring out the BEST in you.” The students rated themselves and a close friend on qualities that can make or break a friendship. One of our students, Ben, admitted that reading some qualities made him reflect on his own areas of strengths and where he can grow. The students also came up with scenarios to role play. They demonstrated how a ‘good friend’ would handle a situation and how a ‘bad friend’ would handle the same situation.
