Last weekend, five MBS Middle School students participated in a full day of group activities and thoughtful discussions as part of the 4th annual Middle School Equity & Inclusion Summit hosted by Gill St. Bernard’s School.
The Summit was designed to empower 7th and 8th Grade students with the resources to be authentic advocates for others and themselves. The students focused on three essential questions as they explored their current experiences:
· What do I need to feel included in my community?
· What does my community need to provide additional spaces of support?
· What steps can students take to help make positive social changes to their school climate?
The MBS students participating in the Summit were: Ashley Badcock ’28, Haley Chestnut-Stein ’28, Lilyana Karosen ’28, Kai Mittler ’29, and Amelia Yacteen ’29.
They were accompanied by Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB) Klarissa Karosen and Head of the Middle School Alonda Casselle.
