The 1st and 3rd Wednesday assemblies have been approved by the administration for the 2015-2016 school year. Assistant to the Head of Upper School Michelle Bracken said the assembly is being fine-tuned in terms of how long presentations will last or how sign-ups for presentations will work.

The assemblies are overseen by the Community and Character Committee, which decided to organize the all-school meetings modeled after the assemblies at the middle school.

“I think we will continue to explore ways to make the assembly flow as efficiently as possible while being informative,” said Jon Carroll, swim program head and Community and Character Committee chair. “We will continue to push to make [the assemblies] as creative and eye-catching as possible.”

Junior prefect Grace Pan ’16 said the bimonthly assemblies bring the community together.

“We’re all so busy with our individual lives, it can be hard to stay on the same page without face-to-face interaction,” Pan said. “I think a combination of important notifications, meaningful messages, and fun activities would be best way to utilize the time.”
