|Welcome to the Middle School. Except during infancy, there is no stage of life when young people go through more changes in such a short time - and in every aspect of their lives. It is often bewildering to them and to their parents! |
So here at The Savannah Country Day, we offer opportunities for our middle schoolers to grow confidently as individuals, to take risks, to solve problems, to make a difference, and to have fun in a safe,supportive environment. Our faculty, exceptionally friendly and competent,understand that interacting with such curious, energetic students requires patience, humor, and sensitivity. Working in partnership with parents to see that every student experiences success is a top priority.
I invite you to browse our web pages and get to know us better. Middle School is an exciting place to be!
Head of Middle School
Students in Mr. Wiley’s Science class were thrilled to learn how to extract honey from the campus honeybee combs. After taking turns with a heated knife to slice off the top of the comb cells, the students used a hand crank to release the honey. The students will use the honey to produce a variety of products such as soap and lip balm.
|Exploring Interests in Middle School|
So much of Middle School is about discovering who you are and what things you are most passionate about. For a fourth year in a row, the Middle School teachers and administrators hosted a Clubs and Activities Fair so that students can learn more about the variety of opportunities outside of the classroom. The clubs help students find a sense of belonging and explore new interests without feeling exposed or embarrassed. The students were thrilled to learn more about the Debate Club, Diversity Club, Tech Wizards, Quiz Bowl, Beekeeping, Math Team, Chess Club, Animal Care, and Science Olympiad.
|Middle School Whirlygigs|
Serving as a fun refresher for the Scientific Method, Mr. Swanson’s Life Science students climbed chairs and used meter sticks and stop watches to measure the “hang time” of home-made whirlygigs. During the initial investigation, students applied the scientific method to test their hypotheses and determine the affect of wing length. Over the next few days, students will investigate the affects of other variables as they compile data that will help them succeed in the ultimate Whirlygig competition freestyle event.
