On Thursday, October 18th the Spizzwinks, a male a cappella group from Yale University, brought their unique blend of music and humor to Elgin Academy. Their repertoire included an eclectic range of songs—everything from Ed Sheeran, to the Beatles to Bruno Mars. The a cappella concert also included a few Yale classics and a touch of tongue-in-cheek humor.
What is courage? Is it only defined by grand gestures like saving a person from a burning building? Or can acts of courage be found in the daily experiences in our classrooms or in our social and emotional interactions?
middle school students are pondering questions about courage during the school's newly reconfigured advisory program. The advisory period has been moved from morning to later in the day and lengthened to 20 minutes for the purpose of enriching our middle school students' learning experiences.
