We’re back! After our separate summers of action, our middle school learning community began to reform, today, for the new school year.
It was a day of getting acquainted and reacquainted. In whole group meetings, and in advisory, students learned about new aspects of middle school like new courses and teachers, a new cell phone routine, and a redesigned lunch program. They also had a refresher on standards like how to treat each other in large and small groups, how to be a responsible digital citizen, and how to have a fun safe playground that serves 3 year olds as well as young teenagers.
Every student had a 15-20 minute class for each year long subject (except Spanish). We attended an All School Assembly and cheered each other on, heard a poem read by Head of School, Ben Chant, and clapped especially enthusiastically for the seniors.
So far, so good and lots more to come!
