Hello, Middle School Students and Families! Here is the recap from today’s meeting.
Ty Moyo ’27 and Cam Bloch ’27 ran today’s meeting. You can check out the slides from this week’s meeting here.
THE WEEKLY FEATURES
THE BVR STUDENT
Luca Oringer ’29 presented Acts with honesty, integrity, and sincerity.
I chose this because, to be honest, is good. Lying is bad. If you lie, someone will find out, and you’ll get into more trouble. So tell the truth. It’s important to be sincere because if you love something a lot, you’ll do a lot better instead of doing something for other people.
FEED YOUR BRAIN PICK
Fragments of Horror by Junji Ito
Recommended by Patrick Shea ’29
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK …
The book is a collection of short horror stories, and they each have their own vibe. I like that none of them have a happy ending.
WHY I THINK YOU WOULD LIKE IT …
I recommend this book if you are looking for a quick read and enjoy supernatural horror.
WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT
The Hiatt Summer Fellowship program deadline is this Friday. Ms. Garayua sent an email to all students yesterday reminding them how to apply, and she congratulated the 30 students who have already applied.
Zarra Burke ’27 and Mabel Forkner ’27 announced that Beaver is officially registered to march in the 2023 Boston Pride Parade! This year parade organizers have set a limit to how many people can march per organization and Beaver is allowed 75 spots. For planning purposes, please sign up by May 18 to guarantee your spot!
The parade is on Saturday, June 10. We’ll meet in Copley Square/Boston Public Library and march to the corner of Beacon and Park St. The march organizers are working on final details, such as our exact meeting location, and will share them with us soon. More details.
This week in advisory, the 6th and 7th grades will be playing team games on Upper Field. (8th grade will be on their field trip to Romeo and Juliet).
6th and 7th graders will be playing a game called Crossing the Galaxy. Each advisory will first play on their own and then once that challenge is tackled, they will pair up advisories within the grade. As a team, the goal is to cross a distance using only paper plates without touching the turf. If you are caught touching the turf, your whole team will have to start over.
There are a few field trips this week.
8th graders were reminded that the Upper School New Family Welcome is Thursday night. The event is about what life will be like in the Upper School, and 8th graders will meet the new students who will be joining their grade next year. See more details and RSVP here.
The school wants student feedback about how we use space on campus, and they created a survey for students to complete. Some advisories filled it out last week, the survey will be emailed to all students today for anyone who didn’t get a chance to complete it.
6th and 7th graders were told to let them know about the Looking Ahead to 23-24 form to complete with their families about their thoughts and reflections on this year as we prepare for next year. Each spring, Ms. Smith and I carefully place students in class sections and advisories for the following school year, and we will do our best to create the groupings of students most conducive to learning.
