The Masonic Lodge of Quincy donated $10,000.00 for professional development and provided student and parent presentations by Charles Appelstein, M.S.W. author of No Such Thing as a Bad Kid: Understanding and Responding to Kids with Emotional & Behavioral Challenges Using a Positive, Strength-Based Approach. This generous donation allowed Quincy Public Schools teachers, administrators, and student support staff to receive professional development sessions and a copy of the book. Schools were able to build upon their positive, strength-based approach through this support. This funding had a direct impact on school climate and fostering the positive relationships between students and educators.
