 Morning Meetings

Ms. Liebenhaut kicks off each morning with our "morning meeting," our version of the morning announcements. Any information regarding the school/district is given at this time. The pledge is then led by one of our students. After the pledge, Ms. Liebenhaut gives a brief character lesson for each day. Each month we cover a character trait that will help everyone in the building grow as an individual. A discussion question is given each day to encourage the students to apply the character trait to real life. We encourage you to talk to your child about the character trait of the month and inquiry about the dicussion question of the day. Together we are shaping our future! After "Tell Me Something Good" is played, students continue the morning meeting in their classroom by telling something good that happened in their lives, discussing the discussion question, and greeting one another.
