project team

The Waynesboro Area School District utilizes Project Team as to support the social-emotional learning of our K-5 learners. Project Team focuses on the development of six foundations within each of our learners. These foundations are taught during our monthly Project Team days. Each month focuses on a different foundation. On these special days we ask that our learners wear their Project Team house color to show house and school pride.

Project Team colors are connected to the house into which they were sorted. Therefore your learner's color will be their Project Team color for their entire elementary career.

Building Team Culture

Our innovative TEAM Model is a school-wide movement to help schools evolve into TEAM oriented cultures. Our TEAM teachers help students understand the value and significance of teamwork and leadership and create a positive school climate, bringing everyone in the school together to work toward common goals. This, in turn, creates a sense of belonging and an accepting community making for a more productive social and academic environment.

SEL Foundation Skills

Each Character represents an SEL foundation skill: Helping Others, Positive Change, Anti-Bullying, Resiliency, Problem Solving and Leadership.

Students are reinforced daily with these six Foundations. They learn how each foundation is interconnected and how each one is needed for successful lives in and out of school, now and for their futures.

The Characters

Representing and supporting the six Foundations are six characters:

Harper (Helping Others)

Paco (Positive Change)

Amelia (Anti-Bullying)

Ruby (Resiliency)

Philo (Problem Solving)

Lamar (Leadership)

Initially, the characters appear as Elementary School children. As students get older, there are older versions of the characters, too

Bringing it Together with the House

Finally, all of the characters are pulled together using a “house” metaphor. Each character is used as a key element of the house.

By “building” the house together, students come to understand that the house is a place of unity and respect, where everyone is accepted and belongs. They need each other to build this TEAM house.
