A Day at Soundview Prep
MORNING MEETING, 8:10 a.m.
Every weekday, Soundview Students gather in the cafeteria to begin school at Morning Meeting. Morning Meetings are a unquie way the Soundview community comes together to kick-off the day by discussing announcements, current events or topics of interest.
PERIOD ONE, 8:25 a.m.
Period one is the first 45-minute period of the day. For Upper School students, first period might be a science lab, Calculus, Italian III or AP European History, while a Middle Schooler might head to Language Arts, Ancient History or Study Skills. Some have a study hall, and can be seen with books or laptops studying for an exam. Four more periods follow before lunch.
LUNCH, 12:20 p.m.
Soundview Students gather for lunch in the cafeteria. If the weather is nice, students and teachers have lunch outdoors. A favorite Soundview privilege for Juniors and Seniors is to visit neighboring food establishments to buy lunch; other students prefer to bring lunch from home, or purchase a nutritious meal delivered to school via our lunch caterer. Often clubs meet during lunch: the Language Club, for instance, might be enjoying a Spanish or Italian lunch, while the Sewing Club knits something special for a family member. And unless it’s pouring (or snowing), the sounds of dribbling basketballs and touch football games echo across the lawn.
BACK TO CLASS, 1:00 p.m.
Soundview Students return to class for three more periods.
END OF THE DAY, 3:23 p.m.
The school day draws to a close, and students head for home or team practice.
