Second Annual Freeman Strengths Day

March 4, 2020 no comments Teri Nieveen Categories Uncategorized

February 3rd was our second annual Freeman Strengths Day.  We began the day with all students and staff receiving a #freemanstrengths t-shirt.  We also watched a video made up of Freeman grads telling how they use their strengths.  We wish to thank Taylor Sugden, Emily Klein, Eli Pelc, and Dani Busboom Kelli for being a part of this video!

After a pep rally and all-school picture, students in grades Kindergarten through 4th grade went to activities centered on the 10 strengths in StrengthsExplorer while students in grades 5-12 learned more about the 34 CliftonStrengths. The preschool students even did activities to learn about StrengthsExplorer. In the afternoon we rotated with our K-12 Falcon Families.

Sessions for the day included a career panel with four guest speakers, UNL Student Strengths Ambassadors, a TeamMates representative, ESU#5 science instructors, and ESU #5 mental health experts.  It was an amazing experience led by amazing people!

We would like to thank the following people for being a part of the strengths sessions:  Grant Francke, GLF Properties; Tiffanie Havelka, Career Consultant for Medical Solutions; Shaun Edgecombe, UNL-Clifton Strengths Institute; Larry Keiter, 2nd Vice President of Talent Development at Ameritas in Lincoln, Nebraska; Tess Starman, TeamMates; Jase Beam & UNL Strengths Ambassadors; Jamie Mapp, Jen McNally, Patrick Brommer & Matt Dworak, ESU #5.

We continue to share what we do with strengths through social media.  Just search for #freemanstrengths. If you are curious about CliftonStrengths and would like to learn more, please contact the school.
