TOWN MEETINGS

TOWN MEETINGS

 
Town Meetings are held on most Day 5's at 2:15 in our gymnasium to promote our school community and good school citizenship. Town Meetings are hosted by fifth graders who also prepare a powerpoint presentation.

We begin the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of America the Beautiful. We close with our School Song, Siwanoy our Home. In between we have skits, discussions, presentations, birthday recognitions, open mic forums, etc. We review our Siwanoy School Constitution tenets, have updates from our Student Government and Editorial Board, and have begun to introduce Habits of Mind.

A Message from the Principal is also included, sometimes with an "Ask the Principal" segment.  Students can ask any question about their educational experience. Past questions have included, "What is the job of a principal?" or "How are teachers picked to work at Siwanoy?" 

Join us at a Town Meeting, parents are requested to sit in the balcony for space considerations. Town Meetings are posted on the Siwanoy Express calendar.
