What we're curious about
What was your experience of becoming and belonging in Middle School? What do you wish your classmates and teachers knew about you in those years? What would you tell your sixth-grade self? These are the questions we asked Upper School students Avi Singh ’20 and Favor Ufondu ’22 to reflect on in their meditations offered at Middle School Chapel on Wednesday, January 15.
As educators, we often find ourselves in the weeds - considering etymology, functionality, pragmatism. Should we focus on respect, love, empathy, kindness, compassion, caring, niceness, or civility? What are the similarities and nuances? Does it matter? And how do these ideals lead to the creation and sustaining of community?
