Our counseling team and our classroom teachers continue to look for engaging ways to incorporate this important social-emotional learning into Duniway’s classrooms. On Thursday, all classrooms had community meetings first thing in the morning. Each class read the book Peace
, by Wendy Anderson Halperin. After the book was shared, classrooms had discussions and activities that aimed to connect the idea of peace to our own school, school community, and community values. I was able to drop in and visit almost every classroom – it was really powerful to see all our students and staff participating. We plan to have two more school-wide community meetings in the coming months.
