Freshman Board Bonding

Hi Frosh Board!

Just wanted to post a picture from our first board bonding activity at Wilmette Bowl! Remember if you have any ideas for a group activity let me know! Sometime after break we will plan to meet with Big Board at Winnetka so you can get to know how the upperclassmen board works and a service group you may want to get more involved in. Keep attending your service groups and send me pictures of your volunteer experiences so we can spread the word about our social service groups :)

Have a great Winter Break,

Misba S.

Kelvyn Park Exchange Part II

We had an exhausting but truly productive day, full of conversations and important insights. Next week, the teachers involved in the exchange will have a "summit" to discuss how we can build on these initial steps. All of the participating students wrote suggestions for future action.

Here is a link to the debriefing document the students completed at the end of the two visits (November and December).

Finally, here are the slides that Mr. Kucharski used in his closing presentation:
