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
- Many other events and ideas that will be generated by the student body!!
To create a Student Leadership group that has diversity that reflects our student body. To teach the students leadership skills and encourage our students to have more agency and investment in Hillcrest Middle School.
