Middle School 101 Takes the Stage at Salk

December 01, 2017

Middle School 101 Takes the Stage at Salk - image001Eighth-grade students in Jonas E. Salk Middle School's Respect and Responsibility, Integrity, Safety, Staying Healthy and Empathy Program recently put their acting skills to the test through the school's push-in program "Middle School 101."

Students involved in the RISE program, also known as junior leaders, strive to give the school's sixth-graders a smooth transition into life as a middle school student. "Middle School 101" allows support staff to visit sixth-grade classes to discuss all aspects of middle school life. Under the guidance of advisors, social worker Noreen Williams and guidance counselors Michelle Lyons and Michelle Steward, the eighth-graders participate in weekly round table discussions throughout the program on how to properly communicate to the sixth-graders about important topics such as handling conflicts, bullying situations, spreading kindness and more.

With the help of the school's movie making club advisor NectariaKourkoumelis, the students filmed various skits using a green screen to share with the sixth-graders. The skits tackled cyberbullying, roasting others, how a bystander can transform into an upstander and how to be courteous to others every day.

"They are very engaged in it," said Williams. "We try to make them aware of what is going on outside of themselves and it has been great having these conversations with them."
