The Month of the Young Adolescent
Did You Know?
… that young adolescents have a month just to celebrate them? Well, October is that month! As such, we take this time to celebrate being a lively, engaged, and informed Middle School. We use many resources to guide our professional development and exploration of best practices, including the Association for Middle Level Education (formerly NMSA). Currently, Middle School faculty are engaged in discussion and reflection about AMLE’s sixteen guiding principle for schools for young adolescents. Faculty will explore which characteristics we exemplify the most, as well as on which we can improve. I look forward to sharing thoughts that come out of our faculty conversations. AMLE’s document can be found here:
