Yearbook: Yearbook is a full-year elective that culminates in the production of our yearbook. The students also produce a multimedia DVD to be shown at the Middle School Awards Assembly at the end of the year. Student members of the yearbook staff are expected to have a high level of maturity and the ability to work independently. Yearbook provides a wonderful opportunity for members of the team to exercise their creativity, while developing new skills in computer design, photography, marketing, budget management, copy writing, and project management.
Newspaper: Students may choose to be a part of the Kibbitzer staff during their exploratory period one or two days a week. As members of the staff, they write articles on current relevant topics of their choice and learn to proofread and edit. Students serve as editors and have the opportunity to help with layout and photography.
Tefillah Council: Tefillah (prayer) Council is an organization open to all Middle School students. Tefillah Council affords students the opportunity to take a leadership role in leading and coordinating services and in impacting the spiritual life of the school. The Tefillah Council members are in charge of our Torah services, leading special services for grades 1 through 3, working on our Purim carnival, writing the Purim shpiel (farcical skits), and taking charge of any special service that may occur during the year.
Green Team: Middle School students, along with faculty, staff, and parents work together to "green" our school. This group encourages the school to make everyday "green" choices and promotes more environmentally friendly ways to live.
Middle School Musical: Every spring 6th, 7th and 8th graders sing and dance in a musical production that is performed for the whole school as well as 2 performances for families and the community.
