By interacting and learning from each other, and hearing from guest speakers, we will promote an appreciation of ourselves and others, while broadening our understanding of the world and the diverse cultures and identities within it. MCSU is an energetic, peaceful, and safe environment for all to come together and learn without judgement.  Meetings will take place on Thursdays during 8th grade lunch in room 190c (8O team area).  We will look at adding a 7th grade option in the near future!

    RESTORATIVE JUSTICE

    Restorative Justice is the process of making things right when harm has been done by taking accountability for one’s actions and repairing the harm.

Students are trained as Circle Keepers to help facilitate RJ circles and meeting times will be used to problem solve and advance skills. Meetings TBD.
