Collective conversations fostered connections as Samoset Middle School students interacted with teachers and building administration outside of the traditional classroom structure during a recent program.

As part of the Making Connections initiative proposed by Principal James Horan, the building leadership team organized the event as a chance for teachers and students to converse in a different setting. After enjoying breakfast, attendees divided into groups and participated in an activity that involved passing around a numbered beach ball with six corresponding questions. Members of the group passed the ball among themselves and depending on what number was facing them answered a question from the prepared list. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Graham was also in attendance during the event and eagerly joined in with a group to participate in the activity. 

The focus of the program was to enhance communication within each group and facilitate relationships between building administrators, teachers and students.
