MSHeader5.31

Hello, Middle School Students and Families!
I can’t believe it but next week—the week of June 6—is the last week of school! As a reminder:

  • Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday next week dismissal is at 2:25 p.m
  • That Thursday, June 9, we have Student-Led Conferences.
  • And finally that Friday, June 10, is 8th-grade Promotion. The entire Middle School attends, and it is a dress-up day. Students arrive on campus by 9:30 a.m.; dismissal is at noon.

Now, for our second-to-last recap of the year!


Cam Bloch ’27 and Kiernan Collins ’27 ran today’s meeting. You can check out the slides from this week’s meeting here.


UPCOMING EVENTS & ACTIVITIES

Spring Music Exhibit & Instrument Return
The Spring Music Exhibit is tomorrow night! All Middle School students stay after school to have dinner and recess time at 3:45 p.m. and then rehearse at 5 p.m. The exhibit starts at 6 p.m. and lasts less than an hour.

Thursday morning, students will turn in their home instruments. Students should bring back everything they took home this year, including music stands.


THE WEEKLY FEATURES

BVRStudent5.31
Kyle Boudreau ’26 and Brody Vandernoot ’26 presented Completes Assignments Thoroughly and On Time.

“One main reason that turning assignments in on time and thoroughly is important is to get full credit and get the best grade you can possibly get, and in high school turning assignments in late affects your grade and it’s good to get into good habits for high school.”


FEED YOUR BRAIN PICK

THIS WEEK’S LUNCH PROGRAMMING

WHAT ELSE WE TALKED ABOUT

Ms. Smith talked about the end of the year student-led conferences happening next Thursday, June 9. All students used today’s R-TIME and will use advisory all this week to prepare to lead those conferences.


In advisory last Wednesday, all Middle School students participated in “Sharing The Good” — an activity where they reflected on the past year. They shared a meaningful event, one or two things they are grateful for, or offered advice to students joining next year.

Andre Gordon ’26, Charlie Peterson ’26, Nathan Rosario ’26, Daniel Kemp ’26, and Leo Wheatland ’26 talked about this activity and the benefits of expressing gratitude—which include increasing empathy, improving physical health & mental strength and connections with others, reducing aggression, and enhancing self-esteem. They then shared some of the things students wrote last week; all responses are posted on a bulletin board in the Middle School hallway.


The MS Spring Fling is back! Instead of R-TIME and Afternoon Activities Thursday, the Middle School community will tie-dye, play games, and more! We will also be making rockets out of bottles.

  • If you have empty two-liter bottles (with the caps!) around, please bring them to school tomorrow and Thursday.

Reid Bugbee ’28 reminded everyone about the Middle School Social happening Thursday, June 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the gym. There will be games, food, candy, and music; the theme is beach/summer.

  • Any students staying on campus after school until the Social need to email Ms. Hollos before noon on Thursday.
