Lunch Time

Each team takes a much needed lunch break around noon every day. While they eat, students are invited to share with each other around a particular topic or question. Questions might be as light as, “who in your family are you closest to and why?” or as deep as, “what is the hardest thing you have had to overcome in your life?” Students are invited to share but not required. Many have said over the years that the level of vulnerability and the acceptance they have found on their team is like nothing else they have ever experienced.
