Middle School Student Life Opportunities

We believe that middle school is a time for our students to accept new challenges, engage in new activities and stretch their wings. Our students are able to do this in a variety of ways in the middle school, from participating in organized athletics to finding their voice in chorus or discovering their inner inventor and problem-solver through Design Thinking. 

CLUBS and Activities:

  • Kindness Club
  • Robotics Club
  • Model United Nations
  • Forensics
  • Spelling bee
  • Geography bee
  • Outdoor sports
  • Art and art contests 

Leadership opportunities

Leadership can take many forms, so we pride ourselves on offering our students the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to lead, whether it’s through collaborative classroom work or serving in the Student Government Association. Opportunities include: 

  • Student Government Association
  • Honor Council 

VOLUNTEER SERVICE

Volunteer service also is encouraged in the middle school. Each grade level volunteers by advisory group one early dismissal day at a non-profit of their choice. Favorite charities include the SPCA, the Ronald McDonald House, the Norfolk Botanical Gardens and Nauticus. A partnership with Hospitality for the Homeless and other area nonprofits enables students to volunteer on campus after school.

Social Outings & class Bonding

Four times a year, the SGA hosts Hangout Nights on campus. These events are complete with musical entertainment from an area DJ, dancing and refreshments. Each fall the sixth and eighth-grade class participate in class bonding retreats off campus.
