Recent Admissions Events

Bring-A-Friend Day, January 15: Several middle school students invited friends or met new friends during the annual Middle School Bring-A-Friend To School Day held on Friday, January 15. Eighty visitors in grades 5-8 accompanied current SJCS middle school students for a half day of classes, lunch, and recess. Student-friend pairs spent the day learning and collaborating on a variety of topics. For example, in the 6th grade, math students “Faced-Off” playing an integer operation card game; history students explored Brazil’s Carnival traditions and made parade masks as a culmination of their studies in South America; science students, in their studies on animal diversity, played a card game called Predator; in literature classes, students partnered with their friends to create dioramas; chorus students learned an arrangement of the spiritual “Wade in the Water.” For 7th grade students, grammar classes had a sentence diagramming competition where teams competed based on the speed and accuracy; history students divided into teams for a history “Quiz Bowl”; 7th grade math and 8th grade pre-algebra classes played “dominos” with pentagons. Last but not least, 8th grade history class watched a film and discussed the historical impact of the “Roaring Twenties” on American history while science students used KEVA planks to complete engineering challenges.
