Autumn brings Halloween

Two weeks ago during one of our democratic meetings, one of our students proposed to have a party. Everyone agreed to the motion and before you know it a full on committee was voted in.
A few students asked me with eager eyes, “can we dress up? Can we have a scary (but not too scary) play? Can we bring healthy treats?” All I said was, “I don’t know, can you? It’s your party. If you want to make it happen, then make it happen.” Soon after everyone agreed on a head coordinator who organized daily meetings and job assignments. They took off with it!! We now have students in charge of the play, decorations, treats, a parade, and a DJ for the dance party. As a mentor, I attend the meetings to help facilitate effective communication and help them really listen to each other. I am so eager to see it all unfold.
