“I just felt very powerful, like I could do anything.” – Madeleine (4th grader)
“I enjoyed facilitating the Council because of the togetherness. I thought it was a rewarding experience and fun.” – Soren (5th grader)
“I love leading Council because it gives me a sense of importance.” – Ava (4th grader)
“It was very fun. I feel like Soren did more of the facilitating. I mostly ran the games. We played wax museum and the wave. I didn’t really want to play toss ’cause it seemed rowdy.” – Isaac (5th grader)
Upper Elementary students co-facilitated two large KMS Community Councils; developing the prompts, leading all elementary children (PreK-5) in games and dedications; articulating Council intentions; and facilitating story-sharing and active listening.
