I recently had the opportunity to visit Brewster Pierce Memorial School’s All-School meeting. This weekly gathering is largely lead by the students and was truly powerful to experience. I’m very appreciative of the chance to visit and learned a lot about how valuable it is to provide students with not only a strong sense of community but also opportunities to lead and gain confidence in front of peers and adults. Seeing students at ease leading the joke of the day or explaining the activity to the audience reminded me of needing to make sure to provide opportunities for students to practice these experiences in supportive environments. Pretty amazing to see and experience.
