Lower School Students Build on Classroom Learning in Weekly Assemblies

October 26, 2018

The Lower School Assembly is dedicated time for students and faculty to gather together in the Broad Street Ballroom. The goal is for students to have opportunities to engage with their peers across grades 1-5, learn from each other, and deepen their school spirit and pride. The assembly serves as a space for students to further explore the attributes that comprise the Portrait of Léman Learner, develop an understanding of our school's commitment to community service, and engage in dialogue about Lower School topics of interest and relevance.

During our first assembly in September, we read The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson, the Lower School community shared book this year, and then discussed the many lessons the text presented, including the importance of respecting each other, being kind, and celebrating our diverse and inclusive community. At the beginning of October, students were reminded of the purpose of dress down days as a way to acknowledge our school's commitment to community service, and they learned about October's service organization, the Alzheimer's Association. On Wednesday, October 31, students enjoyed celebrating Halloween at the assembly by cheering on their friends during the Lower School parade, hearing an interactive read-aloud of The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams, and watching the fourth grade perform a dance to Michael Jackson's "Thriller", an annual Lower School tradition.
