Community Circles

On Friday, MS 131 had its first Community Circle meetings.  In these small groups, consisting of one teacher and 6-10 students, our community will meet to discuss important issues such as diversity, how to resolve conflict, and how to be a positive member of 131.  We will also take monthly trips within this group, allowing us to move our learning beyond the school walls.  The first week was enormously positive.  As one 8th grader said after playing a game called “Stand up and Applaud,” “I didn’t know how many things I had in common with everyone!”
