Go for the Goal lesson at Rolfe Middle School

Students in the “Go for the Goal” program at Rolfe Middle School participated in a team building activity that got them thinking about people who have touched their lives in positive and lasting ways. A cutout handprint was used in the activity to support the concept that positive touches can leave lasting imprints on their lives. They also discussed the impacts they want to leave on others.

To download a copy of the Handprints lesson, click here.
