Head for the Day

It’s been a fun, bright, sunny morning at Saklan; Spring is finally here! I had the privilege of visiting lots of classrooms and noticed many good things. This reminded me of the connections made here at Saklan and how we reinforce them every single day. 

During Morning Meeting, all of the students were listening, paying attention to each other, and using kind, inside voices. In Humanities, I recognized that the 7th graders were collaborating with their table groups and participating respectfully in the discussions. During CLASY, the lower school students were doing fun activities in mixed ages outside. Everyone was smiling and working together.

My time walking around campus this morning made me reflect on some of my favorite Saklan experiences. One of the highlights from this year was the Family Group World Cup. Family Groups played soccer games against each other during lunch recess. It was so fun to cheer on other people, and it brought the whole school together!

Another fun thing that we do at Saklan is the All-School Concert. It’s where all the kids have an opportunity to use their voices to sing, play instruments, and have a fun time. Even the preschool students get to be on stage and participate!

Field experiences are a great part of Saklan because it helps make connections with what we are learning and with each other. One of my favorite field experiences is when I went to Coloma. It was fun because we had a lot of activities and got to tell spooky stories in the cabins. It bonded our class together.

This is what makes Saklan such a great place. Thank you to the teachers and staff members for all that you do!
