All-school assembly

Continuing with the theme of voice, today's all-school assembly focused on using your voice to vote. Tr. Liza told us to listen to our inner voice to guide us to do what is kind, right, and just. Middle school students walked us through the voting process, the 5 Ws of voting, and how using our voice to vote is a way to express what is important to each of us. Then they helped the entire school register to vote and cast a ballot to decide on next week's partner activity - art project or a sing-a-long. We look forward to hearing the results.

At the site, students tested water samples for salinity, turbidity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, and pH levels. Upon returning to campus, students compared results from the local water source with our own water on campus. We were excited to see that both locations registered indicator levels within healthy zones!
