Punctuality (Did you join the conversation on time?)

Participation (Have you actively participated in the conversation?)

Preparation (Were you prepared in advance so that you could have a better experience?)*

Respect (Were you considerate and cooperated with a positive attitude?)

For this meeting, please be prepared to share how the pandemic affected you or your family. During the first phase of the pandemic, did you stay mostly home? How much did you exercise? Did you take classes online? Do you believe the pandemic affected you mentally and/or emotionally? If you had a job, were you able to keep it? Be prepared to answer some questions and perhaps ask other participants.
