Weekly Circles

Click to view larger

Every Monday at 9:30am, we have circle time.  Students come to the gym and they work in small groups that include Kindergarten through grade 6 students with the groups being the same each week.  The circles are built on Restorative Justice circles with the grade 6 students taking a strong leadership role in their groups.

The topics change each week and we focus on character education as well as problem solving and creating strategies to help all of our students be successful.  If you would like to see what we have covered each week so you can continue the conversation at home, please check Mrs. Sauder’s e-teacher page for weekly updates.
