Morning Circle & Silent Meeting

Every day at Wellsprings begins with Morning Circle. All students, teachers, and staff gather in a circle in our community room. A teacher calls for a moment of silence to begin our school day together. Then we join hands around the circle to connect our community with "good morning, friends."

Morning Circle offers a time for students and teachers to speak about plans for the day and upcoming activities, academic concerns, "housekeeping" issues, and whatever a student, teacher, or staff person wants to bring to the community for discussion.

On Friday mornings, Morning Circle is followed by a fifteen-minute Silent Meeting in the Friends (Quaker) tradition. It is a special time for individual inner reflection and group connectedness for the Wellsprings community.
