Can a Middle School girl really make a difference in the world? At the end of the school year, every Stuart Middle School girl participates in Goal 3 Day in which students take part in a variety of service learning activities. The aim is for students to deepen their understanding of social injustice and recognize their power and privilege to make a difference in the world.
The Middle School at Stuart
The Middle School years are a time for Stuart girls to discover who they are, what they want to become and how they want to make a difference in the world. We challenge and support our girls through this process as they mature spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically.
Our innovative curriculum and 1:1 iPad program provide students with essential 21st century skills, including effective communication, critical thinking and problem solving. Outside the classroom, girls develop an awareness and commitment to social justice through discussion and service to others.
A comprehensive advisory program, extensive club offerings, strong athletics and an exchange student opportunity in eighth grade allow our girls to build confidence in their abilities to lead, compete and collaborate.
As the culmination of their studies of ancient Greece in history and the Greek myths in English, fifth graders recently participated in an afternoon of Greek Day activities. Based on their reading of D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths, the girls presented themselves as their favorite Greek God or Goddess, complete with costumes and props. Zeus, Athena, Hermes, Demeter, and Hades were just a few of the mythological characters from Mount Olympus who came to life. Next, Team Athens and Team Sparta competed in a quiz bowl, displaying their knowledge of the geography, history, and culture of ancient Greece. Following the friendly competition, a buffet of delicious Greek fare was enjoyed by all. Click through for photos from Greek Day.
The sixth grade girls were treated to a special lesson on the final P.E. class of the year as classmate Sydney Amato took the lead. Sydney has been working hard on her hula hoop routine at Circus Place and shared her latest dance with the class. She then asked every girl (and teacher) to grab a hula hoop and give it a try! She taught the class knee hooping, elbow hooping, the weave, and the elevator trick. Everyone was in awe of how difficult these stunts were. Thank you to Sydney for a great end of the year PE class!
