Motivation Assemblies

Our goal for all our assemblies is to influence real change in our school culture.  We focus on empathy, choice making, courage, and caring. These assemblies grow and change throughout the years, we have listed some of our most recent speakers.  We see all our students as individuals who have needs and who can be great in their own right.  Today "bullying" is being used as a word that not only describes an action, but it is starting to describe individuals.  We don't see children in this light, we choose to believe that all students can decide who they want to be and it is our job to direct them and encourage them to be their best.
