Town Meeting/School-wide Share

A school gathering celebration

Town Meeting is a whole school gathering that develops community and provides a forum to celebrate student learning in progress.


The Town Meeting gives students the opportunity to present their learning-in-progress to the larger school community in a creative, interesting and artful way. There are individual, small group, or whole class presentations.  One will observe students operating microphones and other presentation equipment, and behaving as a respectful audience. Through Town Meetings, students gain confidence performing and presenting. HOT Schools encourage parents, community and board of education members to attend.
