Empowering our children
One of the ways we work to create a sense of belonging and build a stronger school community at Seven Peaks is through empowerment. Empowering our children is important at every age and every grade, but the middle school years provide a critical opportunity to focus on deeper levels of communication and trust among teens and adults.
Middle School Empowerment Programs
To support our teens, we’re in the process of developing empowerment programs for our teen boys and girls. In the coming months, we’ll be creating a boys council led by male teachers and volunteers. For girls, we are bringing a Muse Empowerment Series. We’ll be keeping you posted and may be asking for your help so stay tuned.
To support our empowerment efforts, we’re excited to bring two learning/discussion opportunities to parents and community members. These include a book talk with Stacie Davies, author of A Girl’s Rules for Life (daily life suggestions for young teens to adult women), and a Film Screening of She Started It (documentary on women tech entrepreneurs, shot on location in Silicon Valley).
What “assessment” means for our children
Please join us for the next coffee/Kombucha with the principal meeting on October 18th if you are interested in learning more about why and how we use assessments to enrich your child’s learning experience. Our assistant principal and teachers will share more about NWEA and IB Assessment.
As we move into our second month of the school year, I want to thank you all for helping us get off to a great start. Your support of our unique PK through 8th grade learning family continues to help us grow and thrive. Your partnership makes all the difference for our kids and we look forward to working with you throughout the year. Happy Fall!
