The U-32 Student Council meets monthly with the U-32 Admin team, bringing ideas and sharing upcoming activities and community service. As a result of these meetings there will be 3 high school pep rallies this year - the next one coming up on January 27th after a spirit week incorporating Bring the Change! (A Leukemia/Lymphoma foundation fundraiser)
CivilSchools: Helping Your Teen Navigate the Digital World: Moving from Hurtful to Healthful
Rather than spending an evening discussing the dangers of social media, which are vast, we are going to equip you with the high leverage skills and interventions that are critical to your adolescent's well being.
We will focus on the pro-social behaviors that will help your family not only successfully handle cyber-bullying, sexting, and other negative elements of the online world but how to design a plan that prepares them to thrive within it.
Starting this month, Scott Harris and I will be facilitating monthly fishbowls in the restorative practice style. We'll ask someone to prepare a dilemma to share with students to gather feedback and ideas on how to move forward. Our first U-32 fishbowl will take place on January 25th and art teacher, Amy K. will present her dilemma around respectful communication at U-32 around the topic of diversity - she is seeking resources and ideas about ways to hold the discussion school wide. If interested, sign up for callback with Scott Harris on January 25th!
