Morning Meetings are a critical part of the Terra Verde experience. It is how we start the day and connects students with our virtues program. It is the time for us to gather together in multi-age groups to learn about one another, to model the values we share, and to reflect on what is important to us as a community. It is a time where courtesy, warmth, fun, and safety reign, where children experience a sense of significance and of belonging in the Terra Verde community. This powerful Responsive Classroom practice promotes a climate of trust, and encourages positive behavior. It sets the tone for our day in a exciting and adventurous way.
The Morning Meeting has been led by teachers, students, staff, community members, and parents.
