Upper School Assemblies are designed to bring the Upper School community together for discussion, celebration, and community building activities. Assemblies are held once per schedule rotation and events may include student performances, guest speakers, and spirit rallies.
With the help of the Convocations Board, the Upper School launched an assembly series entitled “Join the International Conversation” during the 2015-16 academic year. This series relies on faculty expertise and provides students with an in-depth look at national and international current events. The series is designed to prepare students to engage in discourse about current events in ways that are collaborative, collegial, and productive, regardless of one’s political, cultural, or religious beliefs or background.
