Middle School Principles of Leadership

Middle School students have many opportunities to take on leadership roles. Through an array of clubs and their Exploratory classes, older students can take on mentorship of younger schoolmates.

Formal leadership opportunities can be found in Student and House Council, and Grade 8 students can participate in the Where Everybody Belongs (WEB) program.

Student Council

Student Council members plan and carry out activities throughout the year, including social activities (dances) and service events. The Student Council also provides a voice for students at the Middle School.

House Council

House Council members foster and sustain school spirit through house activities such as sports day, Valentine's activities, and seasonal spirit activities. 

Library Council

Students on Library Council read and review the newest books coming in to the library. Members also plan special events such as a Twilight Tea Party, book-buying trips, movie events and more.

Where Everybody Belongs (WEB)

WEB is a transition program that welcomes Grade 6 and new Grade 7 students.WEB is built on the belief that students want to and can help other students succeed. Grade 8 students train to be WEB Leaders: they become motivators, leaders and teachers who guide other students to success at the Middle School.
