Students at Cayuga Elementary School in the Sachem Central School District are kicking off 2023 by coming up with “One Word” to lead them throughout the year. The One Word Challenge asks students to think of a single word they want to focus on for 2023. This word will help guide their actions and decision-making.
In this schoolwide activity, students identified a positive word that was meaningful to them. They thought of examples of how it will help them throughout the year and how they can put it into action. Students them created visual representations of their words to be hung in the building’s hallways for all to see. This activity helps students develop a growth mindset and set goals while creating a positive vision for the year ahead.
