Do you suffer from assembly overload? It just seems like every week we are having a different assembly. I posted a few pictures from last week when Philip Rivers [Chargers QB] came to our school to give a motivational talk. That was very cool, but also cut my classes by 15 minutes. We've got another one this Friday though...so I think this is our 3rd week in a row :/
In Oct/Nov, it seemed like we have a Friday assembly every week those months...Pep Rallly for a football game, Homecoming [announcing the theme], then Homecoming [announcing Prince & Princesses and Senior Court], and all sorts of assemblies.
I understand we want to build community within our school, and I am all for that. But must we have so many assemblies?? I am losing precious class time. "We need our students to do well on this test, etc"...so give me more class time then ;) I'm fine with once a month...that I can handle. But we've had soooooo many assemblies! What can we do?
Have you guys had experience in this area? Any tips on how to approach it with admin/ASB? A lot of the teachers are fed up, and we'd love a positive way to bring up this subject :) Anything would be appreciated! Thanks!
Thanks everyone! Have a great week!
