Read about what's happening in the Middle School this week.
MIDDLE SCHOOL MEETING
Dear Middle School Families,
Here's a look at what is happening in the Middle School.
Click here to see the slides from yesterday's Middle School Meeting.
We reminded students to have their cameras on for the meeting and all of their classes. Seeing everyone’s faces builds an important sense of community whenever we are online. Google Meet has launched new background images (similar to Zoom). We encourage students to have fun choosing their backgrounds, allowing them to hide all of their surroundings except their faces!
We thanked Mr. Christy, Ms. Flannery, and Ms. Sullivan for all their work to create online schedules for students that show ALL of their classes, including music and BVRFit. When we are back on campus, they will also show room numbers for each class.
We reminded students that being on time for class means having everything they need for class, set up and ready to go, and having their cameras on at the time class starts.
The Middle School Fall Play, A Simpler Time premiered last night! If you missed the show last night, don't worry, it's available online until November 29. The link and instructions on how to watch can be found here. Great job to the entire cast and crew!
Maddy Bell '26 talked about the Healthcare Heroes Cards that Community Action Leaders made. 25 cents for each card will be donated to Mass Nursing Association.
Last Friday, students attended the second Leadership Workshop, “Mapping Your Individual Skills”. Students took an inventory of their unique character traits and set goals around those they wanted to highlight and those they may need to further develop in order to better understand how to build character and personal growth. The next BVR Leadership Institute is Friday, December 11.
