Weekly Highlights

Field Day Fun!

Strengthening Friendships & Building Healthy Relationships – This week, student pairs played games to help get to know one another better. Having something to do, such as a game with rules, can help people connect and have fun.

P3 – Students are preparing for our student-led symposium, in which they will be teaching invited community members alternatives to violence. This week, they zeroed in on what they will be teaching. Students also listened in on a live-recorded conversation that Mr. Devlon had with his wife Wendy. They spoke about stereotypes and racism they’ve endured in their lives.
