Once a month we do “Friday Afternoon Live!” in the auditorium. Performances are student-led and can be singing, dancing, or instrumental performances. They can be popular songs or original compositions. These kids love performing for their friends and supporting each other.

Community meeting: Lower elementary students had their first ever community meeting this morning. This meeting will be held every other Friday, and is a way for students to constructively discuss problems in the classroom, and work together to come up with solutions. The children keep track of issues in an agenda book. Today's topics included: classroom volume during clean up, how to properly store silent reading books, and whether or not kickball is a safe game for recess. Our first meeting was a shining example of what a student-led community should be!
