Halloween and time for some fun.
It’s one thing to talk about the importance of school community and quite another to devote time and resources to making that talk walk. The ASA – all school activities, a cross divisional group – planned this afternoon’s event. It brought together all ages from kindergarten to the twelfth grade. They worked in groups to design and carve their pumpkins and dress their senior for the runway costume parade. Even the pre-k were there for the show and they had almost as good a time as the senior class who took the lead. Watching the respectful way the older students treat the younger ones – letting them be at the center of the activity – is a powerful lesson for all of us in the business of education.
Building and maintaining community is not just about pumpkins of course but they can certainly be part of it.
