Principal Melissa Provost, Assistant Principal Rachel Scanlon and twenty-nine Farley Elementary School staff members turn a recent team-building activity into a charitable event. 

After attending a staff professional development workshop on Monday, Farley teachers used their “growth mindset” as they gathered together at Paint Misbehavin’ on Main St. in Hudson. The staff originally embarked on this outing to enjoy some time together outside of the classroom and participate in some creative activities.   They chose an activity that many of them were unfamiliar with to give them the opportunity to be the students themselves for a change.   Ms. Scanlon, who organized the event, said, “The Farley teachers stepped out of their comfort zones as they were taught how to paint lovely fall scenes.  Lots of laughs and stories were shared by all.”  Ms. Scanlon also mentioned that, “Some of the paintings will be hung up around school to demonstrate for our students, that their teachers too, push themselves to try new things and learn new skills.”

Being the continual givers that they are, the teachers decided to turn the event into a chance to give back to the community that they all feel such a strong connection to.  Each staff member brought non-perishable items and donated a car full of these goods to the Hudson Food Pantry.
