Morning Meeting & Assembly

Morning Meeting

Morning Meeting is a community-building time shared between teachers and students at the start of each day when students practice the social skills of cooperation, empathy, listening, and responsibility. Common Morning Meeting activities include a greeting and opportunities for students to share, review class announcements, and participate in a group activity. Morning Meeting is just one component of the Responsive Classroom approach embraced by the school to build community.


Assemblies are held once a month and are an opportunity for the whole school to gather in celebration and to further enrich connections among community members. Students attend assemblies with their buddies dressed in their School Spirit Day attire.
