Thursday, August 22nd

  • On Mondays last school year all periods started with a classroom circle. The circles either focused on a specific topic or helped to review/preview what the students were learning.  Each class on Thursday will start with a classroom circle on a specific topic (Respect, Empathy, Prepared for Class, etc).  We will continue our normal routine of starting all classes on Mondays with a classroom circle on August 26th.  The goal of the classroom circle is to develop a positive classroom environment and build relationships.  The circles typically last 5 minutes.
