It Takes A Village

Our First Spirit Day of the school year was on Friday, September 24!!! A huge shoutout to all of our Village Families for helping to make this day an overwhelming success!!! Village spirit filled our halls.

Going Beyond....How was your day?

Family: How was your day?
Child: Ok

Family: What did you do today?
Child: Nothing

If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone! Obviously they didn’t just do “nothing” at school all day. Liam came home from college for the first time last weekend. It really made me think about the questions I asked in order to create opportunities for deeper conversation. This made me think about Village! By the way...everything makes me think about Village! :-)

Below are some questions that will hopefully spark some conversations!

  • What made you smile today?
  • Can you tell me an example of kindness you saw/showed?
  • Was there an example of unkindness? How did you respond?
  • Did anyone do anything silly to make you laugh?
  • Who are 3 people that you talked to today?
  • Did anything surprise you at school?
  • What was easy today?
  • What was a challenge you had today?
  • What games did you play at recess?
  • Does everyone have a friend at recess?
  • What is something new that you learned today?
  • Did you help anybody today?
  • What made you feel proud of yourself today?
  • Did you talk to anyone interesting today? What made them interesting?
  • How was today different from yesterday? How was it the same?
