“We come as strangers, we grow as a community.”
Those were the words at Innovation Tech that embodied many of the community-building activities that took place across OCM BOCES programs at the start of the new school year.
Teachers and other staff made it a priority to create welcoming and affirming environments for all students. They played “Mingle Bingo” games, organized scavenger hunts, offered “Jitter Juice” for wary elementary students, waged a rock-paper-scissors competition, and more.
In this video, which was presented to the OCM BOCES Board of Education on Sept. 21, you can see dozens of photos and video clips that capture the excitement of the new school year. (4:44 min)
