It was an exciting first day in the Middle School! Students and adults alike made new friends and reconnected with our community, everyone full of stories from summer adventures or retreats, some of us a few of inches taller (!), and all of us ready and eager to embark on the new year!
Oh yes: we ALSO ate lunch. (We missed you, too, Kitchins’ Kitchen!) 🙂
On Wednesday, our Middle School students and faculty kicked off the school year with Advisory get-to-know-you games and spirit activities, including choosing an Advisory team name (Mrs. Boss’ Advisory group, a.k.a. “Boss Babies,” has picked a winner in my book!) and spelling out the number of their grade with all of the students in the grade. Seventh Grade really pulled it together in terms of speed to win that last contest, but competition was fierce!*
*”Protests” were raised by “independent observers” that the number six was much harder to form and that, therefore, the other grades really had an unfair advantage…but I would argue that ALL grades did a marvelous job!
Our Middle School Faculty and Staff were delighted to welcome our new Middle School students at our Middle School New Student Orientation! We can’t wait to begin the new year with you!
