Why is All-School Meeting Important to the Friends Academy Experience?
At the start of the day each Wednesday, the entire school community – students, teachers, staff, and family members – gathers in the Commons for about 30 minutes for All-School Meeting. The purpose is simply to be together: to see and be seen by one another and to share, listen, and learn from each other.
Everyone participates in All-School Meeting – whether by being a good listener in the audience, performing a song with gusto, or volunteering to get up in front of the audience and present a Book Buzz, share, or joke. Just like during morning meeting in Lower School and advisory in Middle School, All-School Meeting is a moment to pause and connect with one another before beginning the day. This regular time together helps everyone remember that they are part of a larger community, which strengthens our school’s bonds.
