Building Assets Reducing Risks

Welcome to McGregor ISD #4 Building Assets Reducing Risks (BARR) Program!

In a weekly lesson called I-Time grade 8 & 9 students work on social and emotional skills.  This lesson is based on a video by SoulPancake, Take a Seat Meet a Friend. The students are challenged to talk to a person they normally do not talk to and find something in common through a series of conversation prompts.  Through the activity students can recognize and appreciate that we all have something in common that connects us.

As part of the Building Assets Reducing Risks (BARR) Program the 8th & 9th grade visited Northern Star Scouting Base Camp in Fort Snelling, MN for a lock in program.  

The students were divided into groups with their I-Time teachers.  They moved through different sessions; high ropes course, rock climbing, and various team building / leadership activities.  The night ended with a couple rounds of GaGa Ball and a movie on the big screen!

Base Camp provided an engaging program to face challenges and learn more about each other.
