FALA Volunteer Corps
Our awesome Dean, Deidre Crawley, has started a new group called the FALA Council. This group meets on the LAST MONDAY of EVERY MONTH at 3:30 pm in Room 8 at the school.
The next meeting is
Monday, September 26th at 3:30 pm.
I want to encourage all of the parents to consider coming to this meeting. I attended today and it was a great experience. I came out of it energized and feeling inspired by what I heard. This is an open meeting that is attended by Students, Staff/Admin, Teachers, and Parents. It was completely a team building experience that I think everyone will want to be part of…
At the meeting today (Sept 29th), there were 5 students, 4 parents (including myself), 1 staff member, and our Dean. We discussed our visions for the school – Deidre called it “Celebrations” – to find out what we all really wanted. We then discussed how this year is a Transition Year were things were being recreated, fixed, repaired, and focused. We talked about ideas for the 20th Anniversary celebration figuring out ways to make this a great year. And then, we brainstormed on new ideas, needs, and action planning.
To be honest, I think I learned more from the Students about what is happening at school and what they want then I had ever heard before. They are amazing kids and their energy was infectious. I found out about “The Llama Show” – you MUST check it out. We talked about how the Music Department is being reformed and the kids were excited. I heard about activities from NHS and NJHS, and things they wanted to see happen… This was truly a great meeting!
