Middle School Students Sign Up for Leadership Groups

In addition to offering 16 different clubs this fall, the MBS Middle School offers an array of Crimson Leadership Groups that are open to all students.  On Friday, October 14, students gathered outside to enjoy the beautiful weather and learn more about these leadership groups.

Students were able to sign up for the following opportunities:

Crimson Ambassadors 
The Crimson Ambassador Program invites students to represent the Middle School at Admission events. Students host, give tours, and work to introduce new students to the School.

GLOW (Girls Leadership Outreach and Worth) 
The GLOW club is dedicated to supporting girls and inspiring them. The group also organizes educational forums that promote and understanding of the role of women in society. The group works in conjunction with the Upper School GLOW club.

Green Team 
The Middle School Green Team is committed to bringing students together to help improve the environment. The group brainstorms and implements solutions to clean up the local ecosystem, and also tries to educate and persuade people to modify their daily behaviors to make less of a negative impact on the Earth.

Kaleidoscope is a multicultural diversity club that promotes awareness, acceptance, and appreciation of diverse cultures. Students gather to discuss topics surrounding socioeconomics and cultural identity.

Lotus is a club focused on self-love, body positivity and eating disorder awareness. The club was created to allow a safe space for discussions on insecurities, social media, health, and body shaming. In Lotus, we will participate in activities to allow us to eliminate judgment towards ourselves and others.

Mental Health Matters 
Mental Health Matters is a club designed to increase awareness of and reduce stigma around mental health. Mindfulness is an integral component of our educational philosophy and students are encouraged to practice mindful techniques to promote balance, a feel of calm, and reduce anxiety.

Spectrum is a gay-straight alliance club that meets regularly to discuss LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, and intersex) topics, raise awareness and celebrate the community.

Sports Leadership 
The Sports Leadership group will help teach kids the skills and characteristics to be a good leader on and off the field.  The group will work on identifying what a good leader looks like as well as talk through scenarios that may happen in middle school sports.  

Students may also participate in the Middle School Student Government Association (SGA) and the MS Crimson Leadership Council, an umbrella group whose objective is to make every Middle School student feel like they are a valued member of the community.
