Hello, Middle School Students and Families! Here’s a look at what’s happening in the Middle School…
Noa Shatz-Cauley ’29, Juliet Wasserman ’29, and Maddie Stoesser ’29 ran today’s meeting. You can check out the slides from this week’s meeting here.
THE WEEKLY FEATURES
THE BVR STUDENT
Lucas Werning ’27 presented Completes assignments thoroughly and on time.
To me, this means making sure that all my assignments are done on time, and that they are not missing anything. I do this by looking at my Canvas calendar and going through to check with the planner / instructions to make sure that all my work is done.
WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT
Today to celebrate Valentine’s Day, there were creativity stations on the D-Level during recess. Students made PALentine’s day cards, collaborated on a card for Ms. Smith and baby Sloane, and made origami hearts and heart keychains.
Alex Borden ’27 and Zarra Burke ’27 from Sexuality and Gender Alliance (SAGA) talked about tips for an inclusive Valentine’s Day.
Do celebrate all kinds of love and respect and recognize the many forms of love can take. Don’t assume the gender of someone’s Valentine, and don’t assume everyone has or wants a Valentine.
Rishaan Chowdhury ’29, 6th Grade Student Council Representative, announced the winner of the Guess the Candy in the Jar contest. Maggie Whitney ’28 won a jar of Sweethearts.
Ruby Nielsen ’27, 8th Grade Student Council Representative, announced that the Student Council organized a special Valentine’s Day treat at lunch that included a strawberry shortcake bar and heart-shaped cookies.
We then played a school-wide game of Kahoot on Valentine’s Day trivia.
Friday is the last day of winter afternoon activities. Spring afternoon activities start Tuesday; students can see their spring afternoon activities in PowerSchool.
Thursday, February 23 is Feed Your Brain Day on campus. Students will participate in a series of workshops (students will sign up this Thursday). This day allows Middle School teachers to prepare for conferences while students have enriching learning experiences led by BVR administrators and staff.
Ruby Nielsen ’27 and Abigail Zimman ’28 announced this week’s Teacher Appreciation. Abigail presented Ms. Kreisberg and Ruby presented CK (Coach Kuntz).
This week’s advisory activity topic is finding out about our advisor’s middle school life. Each advisor will share their “favorites” from when they were in middle school such as their favorite TV show. They will also share a picture of them when they were young. Students will be encouraged to share their own “favorites”.
