Senior Class Parents

The Senior festivities are coming up and on Thursday, Youth-In-Action would love to help them begin the day with full stomachs and big smiles! Following a tasty tradition, we will be organizing a simple thank you breakfast in the Atrium starting at 7:45 am, Thursday (6/8) morning.  We will be bringing along bagels and cream cheese, orange juice and coffee. In the past the senior class parents have added to the buffet by providing fruit, baked goods and a wonderful selection of other treats. There are 198 students, so we’ll need plenty of food!  If you would be willing to contribute to the breakfast, we would be extremely grateful, as will the students. We will provide all of the serving utensils, plates, cups, etc. Food will need to be dropped off by 7:30 am on Thursday 6.8.

If you can donate to the breakfast please email Beth Kopp with what you’d like to bring.

Several families have already been in touch -- thank you!!

Beth and the Youth-In-Action Board


THANK YOU to all of your students who have given your time this year to be of service to our community! A few service upcoming opportunities are HERE. They include spending time doing a craft with Dartmouth Hitchcock’s Memory Cafe guests, stacking wood for the Norwich Wood Bee and other senior citizens, and the Dance Collaborative could use extra hands at their upcoming recital.

Youth-in-Action will be organizing summer service events. Please contact Beth if you know of needs in the community where you think we can help.

Council Update- Leadership Elections and Senior Farewells:

On 5/24th, Council elected its new leaders for the 2017/2018 school year. Traditionally, this happens just shy of the end of the school year. Council convenes with all newly elected members & the departing Seniors to vote in new leaders. Council then holds two more meetings before school gets out, with the new leaders and members all in place. In between speeches seniors said their farewells, as votes were counted.

Students running for leadership spoke of the expected- their readiness to lead the group, and their desire to represent their fellow students, but they also spoke of their desire to listen more than speak and to improve their ability to understand different viewpoints. Also, most identified a need for council to connect itself to the student body more.

Seniors departing spoke self reflectively of their time on Council. Several seniors had been voted on when they arrived as tuition students in 9th grade while one had been elected for senior year only. Several mentioned their struggle to speak up, and how they gained self confidence, while one mentioned how being on council leadership had helped him to step back and listen to others more. Most found they had learned a lot about themselves during the time on Council. The seniors encouraged the remaining group members to be courageous next year in speaking up and to make the most of their time.

So, at once, next year’s Council is encouraged to listen more, and speak up without hesitation ! It will be a good year, and I encourage you all to pay attention to next year’s agendas so you can stop in and listen yourself, or speak up for something you feel strongly about.

Below is a link to the meeting.  I hope to work with Council next year to make these more easily available to you all (just a click away!)
