This year I have been working with our 7th and 8th graders to explore leadership, one step of many as the school continues to refine and strengthen our approach to metacognitive skill growth in our students.
Mark Day School has had a long commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. It has been a part of our mission since the founding of the school.
This week, February 11-15, is production week for the annual 8th Grade Media Literacy Project. During this time, 8th graders are deeply immersed in completing five assignments that all revolve around the creation of original, research-based productions that convey to audiences important messages about media in our society.
As February begins, we are at the end of a remarkable week with our delegation of students and teachers from Beijing and at the beginning of Black History Month.
