8th Grade Chapel Talks
Chapel Talks are a beloved tradition & capstone experience in 8th Grade. Students share lessons from their lives & inspire their schoolmates. Their wisdom & vulnerability has the effect of strong community building & creates empathy, normalizing experiences like having a learning difference. Students work closely with our Chaplain to write, devise, & deliver a thoughtful talk with confidence.
