On Tuesday, Nov. 22, instead of beginning the day laboring over an algebra problem or diagramming a sentence, Deering High School students and teachers will share a secular morning meal to give thanks.

At 8 a.m., instead of heading to class, students will eat breakfast with their Deering Coaching groups or DCs, groups that meet weekly with the same teacher all four years of high school to develop strong relationships and encourage student engagement in learning.

Some DC Coaches are bringing in the fixings for pancakes and waffles and the griddles to cook them on; others have created sign-up sheets so each student, as they are able, can bring a dish that represents their home culture. Through the participation in the “breaking of bread,” students and staff will deepen their relationships and help improve student achievement.
