Extracurricular activities provide a great opportunity for students to make new friends and develop a sense of belonging. We hope they will learn many meaningful lessons that come from being involved in a school club.
With our plans to create a new vision for Hillcrest Middle school, the student are playing an essential part of this. Hillcrest Student Leadership is also going through a transformation! All students are encouraged to fill out the short application form and turn it into their Core Teacher by Tuesday, September 28th. After that, approximately 20-25 Grade 7 & 8 students will be selected to create the core foundation of this group. From now until December, this core group will meet on Tuesdays at lunch and participate in a variety of team bonding and leadership skills activities. We will also be working with Kat Thorsen in a workshop format so that our students have their perspective represented. In January, more students including Grade 6s will be added to our team.
What will we be doing?
- Creating a new name for the Leadership group
- Creating incentives for students
- Surveying the student body to get their input
- Hosting fun Spirit Activities
- Making announcements and playing music for the school in the morning
