Grade 8 CWW Rosters – February, 2015

Hi Gr8 Students,

These are the rosters for our February CWW trips.  Click through the tabs at the bottom of the page to find your name.  We were happy to be able to give most students one of their top-3 choices.  All of the sites are amazing experiences, so we’re sure you’ll be excited no matter where you were placed.

Those of you enrolled in Changing Our World (COW) this semester will begin researching your site and related issues after the October Break.  If you have COW in Semester 2, you’ll learn about your site before you depart.  There will also be several advisory times set aside to meet with your group and plan your trip, beginning in November.

These trips are intended to give you the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned in Middle School to issues you care about and help others (and the planet) in the process.  We’re thrilled to embark on the journey with you!

All the best,

Mr. Willey and the Grade 8 Team

 

Welcome Back!

Hello Grade 8 Bearcats!

We’ve got an Gr8 year ahead of us:  CWW trips, challenging coursework, exciting End-of-Year events, and the Moving On Ceremony to name a few.  First, however, our main objective is to get to know each other. As your teachers, we are truly invested in your personal and academic growth.  We are here to support you, so don’t hesitate to ask for our help whenever you need it.

Grade 8 is a unique year for a lot of reasons.  In many ways, it represents a shift from childhood to young adulthood.  This means both more freedoms and more responsibilities.  As leaders of the Middle School, we’ll be counting on you to set an example for your younger peers, get involved in service and other extracurricular activities, and make our community welcoming and supportive.  There will also be lots of opportunities for fun, growth, and exploration.  Take full advantage.  It’s your year to shine!

Cheers,

Your Teachers
