At this point in their academic career, students learn more about themselves through the classes and activities they choose. Learning about what they are good at and how to further develop strengths and talents is the focus of this session. Are there areas of interest that have yet to be uncovered? We will engage students in activities to assess skills, interests, and strengths as well as challenge them to explore undiscovered areas.
Students will take stock of our current relationships and evaluate the meaning of each. Together we will learn about the power of “digital footprints” and review the importance of understanding how we represent ourselves online and in person as it relates to communicating a personal brand. Through interactive role-plays and discussion students will be given the opportunity to evaluate current relationships and develop an outreach plan for new ones as it relates to achieving personal goals.
A time for students to pause and take an inventory of what they are most proud of after another year of middle school! This celebratory session will showcase students’ victories through various types of creative expression as we empower them to confidently share their experiences with the class. Students will develop a foundation for strong communication skills as they reflect on and celebrate their growth and experience.
Do you know who you really are? It’s time to take a deep dive into yourself and do some identifying work. You will uncover that you are so much more than your grades. You are the totalities of your hobbies, interests like and dislikes! Come learn about yourself in the cognitive, physical emotional and social areas. The best part is you will be the director of this discovery--let’s you get going!
Long after you’ve graduated from Middle School, what is it that you hope to be remembered for? Is there that one thing you do, that defines who you are? Have you left a mark on someone or something or wonder how you can help to improve on what has gone before you? During this session we will ask students to consider what they may leave behind to enrich the community in which they live and learn.
What are you passionate about? What are your innate strengths? Sometimes we learn best about what we do like but knowing what we don’t like. In this session, we will explore together your unique interest profile and delve into the sweet spot of your success through self-awareness and discovery activities.
We are all problem solvers but how we each solve problems is the difference in measuring success, growth and development. Flexible thinking, forward thinking, creativity and understanding the power of breathe are how we arm our students to develop next level problem solving skills.
In today’s world of technology, student’s ideas of relationships are misguided by the number of followers or likes on their social media feeds. This creates a level of insecurity and inauthenticity. Communication skills have to be relearned in this time of fast-moving technology as there is less and less time to practice face to face interactions. During this session we will challenge students to question current practices and face them with the true meaning of relationships as they build and grow their network to support their future.
Get your students ready for high school through an interactive session that will assess the following key concepts: understanding self, personal skills and accomplishments, problem solving strategies, and how to build and maintain meaningful relationships. Through this session, students will develop a new level of confidence and strategies to take into the first year of high school. We will provide an overview and timeline with what to expect for post-graduation planning.
