Building a Fence: Part 2
In Part 1, Mary* was distraught over her teenage son Michael's* bad behaviors. Now they are working through Highfields' Multisystemic Therapy (MST) program, and Mary has seen significant progress...

    "It's actually been a pretty relaxed month," said Mary. "I'm really proud of what Michael has accomplished."
   Michael has stayed clean for the past 30 days and is about to advance into the next phase at Drug Court.  In addition, he has not skipped school or violated his tether.
   "I started putting in the work I needed to do," said Michael. "Phase advancement is the biggest celebration for me because it's my first time advancing since starting MST."

Hands-On Learning
Students in Highfields' after school program, Reaching Higher, are opening their minds to new ideas thanks to a special program with Jackson District Library!

    What do you get when you put together a battery pack, aluminum foil, wire, a buzzer, play dough, and a cardboard box?
   A homemade Operation game!
   That's just one of the unique learning activities offered to 5th-8th grade students in Highfields' after school program, Reaching Higher, thanks to a special partnership with Jackson District Library.
   Jackson District Library was awarded a grant from Michigan International Speedway (MIS) Cares to teach STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) to select Jackson area schools.
