On Friday night, Middle School North, Middle School South and Oak Grove welcomed approximately 400 students for Snowflake, a fun retreat focusing on personal and social development, promoting sound decision-making and emphasizing teens helping teens. The event was broken up into large group sessions, in which the students watched performances and presentations, and small group sessions, in which they engaged in activities led by high school students and adults. A special shout out to the 40+ staff members and 40 high school volunteers for facilitating groups and working with the students to focus on ways to “wake up, be kind, and repeat”. Lastly, thank you to all of the parents who allowed their students to attend and/or joined us for the parent piece at the end of the evening.

Eighth-grade students at Middle School North learned about a wide variety of careers at today’s Career Fair. Thanks to volunteers, students learned about careers in advertising/sales, cosmetology, fashion design, firefighting, journalism, law, nursing, the military, aviation, programming and real estate.
Eighth-grade students took a walk down memory lane at the Decades Fair hosted by Ms. Balmes and Mr. McKenzie at the Middle School North library. Students were asked to research a decade of American society from the 1950s up to today. In their presentations, the students addressed two objectives: to understand the changes in contemporary American society and to understand how significant events impact society. All students had to research the civil rights movement in their decade, major political policies and key events of the time period. It was clear that the students went the extra mile to present great projects.
Middle School North students performed “Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, Jr.” for Elementary North, the School of Dual Language and Townline Elementary students on May 9. The students provided outstanding performances. The Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, the Red Queen, three versions of Alice and other well-known characters all came to life as the students skillfully acted, sang and danced.
