Community Time

The Middle School LAG (Lead Advisory Group) Committee worked throughout the summer on our HomeBase Curriculum.  In order to face a changing world, students need to develop empathy – the tool to engage with diverse ideas and turn conflict into understanding.  We created eight different lesson units to be utilized throughout the course of the year.  Thus far, we have explored Listening to Understand and Kindness.  The ripple effects of these units have been felt throughout the Middle School as our students are employing different strategies and behaviors both in and out of the classroom.  Along with other activities such as Door Decorating, the Thanksgiving Food Drive and Comment Reflection, HomeBase is a hub for our community to come together, make a difference, and have meaningful and contemplative conversations in safe space.

The MS Arts Council hosted the Second Annual Activities Period Art reception.  Student members served as guides and answered questions about artwork. One highlight was the 7th Grade coloring pages for viewers to work on there or take with them. To view some of these beautiful coloring pages click here.
