What a fantastic time we had last Friday at our Middle School Coffee House. We all gathered on the quad by the MS verandas in the cool morning air with steaming mugs of cocoa or tea in hand. Students shared creative expression in many forms, including musical performances, short stories, poetry, stand-up comedy, and dance. The relaxed nature of a coffee house made it easier for students to be brave and perform. If anyone needed to start over, they simply did. And many students who hadn't planned on sharing anything found the courage to do so further into the event. We look forward to hosting more coffee houses for our middle school students next school year.
