This year the Middle School will be focusing on the theme of Light. Using the school's mission statement as a guide for our student programming and reflection, we started the year with an all school activity asking students to think of how each of them can bring light into the world, our school, their families, and their own lives. Students wrote their responses on light bulbs that decorated the hall.
Keeping with the theme, we have kicked off our monthly Light Up the Middle School recognition program. Each week students are asked in their Language Arts classes to nominate someone who has brought light to the middle school or to the individual student. Students write a short summary of why they have selected that student or teacher. After all nominations are in, the summaries are hung anonymously in the middle school hall. Students who were nominated will be recognized at our monthly Rosh Chodesh celebrations.
Showing simple acts of kindness to each other and bringing light to someone's day resonates with our students. Their selections and responses have been outstanding! Look for updates and photos of our Warriors who are spreading the light throughout our school each day.
