T-Bird Teams build relationships

 

T-Bird Teams have come back with more time to spend with each other than before. 

The purpose of T-Bird Teams is to get the older kids and younger ones to interact and build relationships with one another. The activities that students are assigned have to do with a theme or something that goes on during that month. A week before homecoming, the T-Bird Teams worked on posters for the homecoming Olympic assembly. Each T-Bird Team competed to see whose poster was the most creative. The second time they got together each team decorated cards for the veterans.

“I would like T-Bird Teams to be used more than once a month,” student success coordinator Diane House said. “As it does take up a little bit of students’ class time, it allows them to meet new people and learn something new about them.”

Junior Francisco Palacios likes to work with younger kids because it lets him know what the younger kids think or their view on things.

“It is a short period of time that we spend together, but it’s pretty cool,’’ Palacios said.

He enjoys being with kids but feels that T-Bird Teams should get to know the other teams as well.

T-Bird Teams gather on every first Friday of the month during third hour. Advisors for the teams focus on helping both the young and older kids to communicate and share their thoughts with each other. Older students help the younger students with the activities assigned to the groups.

“It isn’t that hard to control my T-Bird Team group, they are pretty set back,” Ag educator Michelle Keener said.

She sees lots of leadership going on during T-Bird Teams. When they were making Christmas cards the older ones helped write or share ideas with the younger kids. Overall, the teams help build relationships among all Skyline students.
