February Student-Centered Conferences
On February 6th (after school) and February 7th (all day), students will have the chance to share with their parents/guardians and their advisors reflections on their learning and academic progress through a formal writing assignment patterned after the Lebenslauf.
When writing a Lebenslauf, or the “course of life,” early Moravians kept written journals detailing an awareness of their personal religious and spiritual journeys. The Lebenslauf was to be a daily ecclesiastical discipline practiced by every resident of the original, small Moravian community.
When we think about our tradition of the Lebenslauf, we remind ourselves that we all have a story to tell and we can make discoveries about ourselves through the telling of our stories. When we share our stories, we understand each other and ourselves better. Through the traditional Moravian life writing of the lebenslauf, we hope to tell our stories of our academic and personal lives here at Moravian Academy.
Expect to receive an email invitation from your student's advisor early next week.
