Morning meetings at TPS are as old as . . . TPS?
Classrooms and advisories start the day with everyone together, face-to-face, greeting one another, listening to individual voices, and sharing an activity together. Morning meetings create a sense of belonging, sharpen listening and speaking skills, and help take care of some "housekeeping" tasks, such as reviewing the day's schedule and taking attendance.
Morning meeting sets the tone for a day – and, we hope, a lifetime – during which we all understand that the way we interact as individuals and as a group matters.
