Middle School is a time of transition for students in every school. No longer are they in a class with one teacher, but begin to move throughout the building changing classes for each subject. At NMBCS we strive to give our students opportunities to serve. The Middle School has helped with our Elementary Harvest Fest as well as our Annual Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing Party in the past and performing in our Veteran’s Day Program. We instill the qualities of leadership and servanthood by providing opportunities for the students to both lead and serve. Students get to experience classes in Spanish, Music, Physical Education, and Art this semester. Students will have a Bible Class and Weekly Chapel on Wednesday. During our chapels many times we have guest speakers come and deliver God’s Word. There is never a time for any student to be unkind to another verbally, in writing, digitally, or with body language. Harassment and Bullying are unacceptable at NMBCS and grounds for dismissal. The school handbook outlines acceptable behavior and middle school families are asked to review this in order to be watchful stewards of our students. Teachers cannot see everything, but parents can view text messages, group chats, and social media posts in order to monitor any unkind comments between students. It is our goal to prepare our Middle School students to be able to perform at the highest level once they enter into high school. The middle school students are encouraged to take high school classes as soon as they are academically and socially ready for the challenge. We want to offer Stem, Sports, and Rubik’s Cube Clubs to our 6th-8th graders. This year 7th and 8th graders will follow the 4-block model and change classes every 90 minutes except on Wednesday, when we have chapel. Following the Dress Code and Behavior Expectations are mandatory for all K-12 students.
