This 30-day kindness challenge takes place during students’ advisories and they participate in one or two kindness activities every week. There are numerous activities from which to choose in four categories: spreading cyber-kindness, strengthening peer relationships, developing positive mindsets, and fostering student empathy. The kindness curriculum was created by the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley.

The Student Council has spearheaded a number of initiatives this school year and is truly making a difference:
Middle School Dances:
Middle School dances happen three times each school year and the Student Council is responsible for finding a DJ and organizing the event. Our next Middle School Dance will be on June 1st and we have a new DJ for the event! DJ Zak Kowal will be spinning tunes for our last dance of the year!
This year, the Student Council hosted several advisory competitions including pumpkin and door decorating contests, a basketball shoot-off, a gingerbread house contest and an Amazing Race scavenger hunt. We plan to have a few more events before the end of the school year!
Middle School Night Out:
In February, students enjoyed watching Jurassic Park on the big screen in our Kohrs Family Center. Our next Middle School Night Out will be on Friday night, May 18th at the Sky High Sports. Details and a permission slip will be emailed to families soon!
Pennies for Patients:
On Monday, the Student Council will kick off Pennies for Patients, a fundraiser to raise money and awareness for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Please bring your spare change to school for this three-week fundraiser! There will be a collection jar at Cathy’s desk.
Student Council Elections:
On the 1st of June, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Graders will have the opportunity to elect a new Student Council for the 2018-2019 school year! Students will learn more about the election process in the coming weeks.
