First Day of School 2009

This morning we had a great start for the new school year. Opening circle was overflowing with energy from the 54 students and 11 teachers and staff people in attendance. Teachers Chanci, Paul, and Judith (returning after teaching during the early years of Wellsprings) led introductions and exercises that got everyone involved (and laughing).

After a break, each teacher described the classes they would be teaching during the first term. Then each student met with their advisor/teacher to sign up for classes. What followed was a hot dog and burger lunch (cooked on the grill by teachers Bob and Tyler) which included potato salad and other goodies. The afternoon was devoted to our first community meeting of the year.

Here are a few photos taken during the opening circle (click on image to enlarge):

Welcome new students and welcome back to our returning students!
