📣 The 8th Graders adeptly ran their Q2 Assembly during Advisory this morning. They collaborated three committees: Script Writers, Vibe Setters, and Game Organizers…
Vibe Setters greeted Grade 6 and 7 Advisories, conducting a "follow the leader" icebreaker to get active communicators ready. Then they transferred leadership to the Game Leaders for different communication activities: Count'n On It, Noodle Doddlin', and See It, Say It (No Peeking). Each station had students practicing communicating in collaborative ways. Script Writers and Vibe Setters collaborated to create presentations reminiscing our second-quarter experiences like Humans of BFS, school portraits, and Thanksgiving. #SHARKvalues #ActiveCommunicator #bfs #busanforeignschool #MSassembly
