Morning Circle provides each school team with the opportunity to gather and start fresh each morning. Morning Circle starts with the leader of that day's circle stating, Today is [insert day of the week and date here] and we have all lived to serve another day." The rest of the team responds with, "and that's a beautiful thing!"
Another part of Morning Circle is Readiness Check, where all AmeriCorps members point to each part of their City Year uniform and their "can-do attitude," their mind, their smile and their soul. Each item checked off the list is followed by a word indicating "ready!"

After Readiness Check, we dive into Announcements followed by Questions, Comments, and Concerns. Once that is complete, we bring it in for a break with a word, stomp and snap! And then we are ready for the day to begin!


The following video includes three of my focus list students, demonstrating morning circle!
