BVSD 360 is a program for middle school that trains 8th graders to be leaders and mentors for 6th graders and new students. The vision of 360 is to create a youth leadership program that supports a positive school culture, eases the transition for incoming students, and creates a sense of belonging and achievement for all students.
Students who want to be 360 leaders may apply at the end of their 7th grade year. Students who demonstrate leadership potential, personal responsibility and a desire to help others will be chosen for this important role.
During the summer, 360 leaders meet and plan for the next school year. When school starts, they lead activities and build community with new 6th graders. Throughout the year they also meet together, learn new skills, and help with school-wide activities. The 360 Leaders are the ambassadors of our school and work very hard to make Manhattan a great place to be.
Dungeons and dragons is a interactive, fantasy role-playing game in which the students use their imagination to go on campaigns full of adventure and intrigue. The DND club meets every other Wednesday in the library.
The club is to provide enrichment beyond the regular math classes offered in school. This is the right place for students who think math is fun and want to commit an hour each week to “alternative math”. Math club includes one or more of the following each week:
Working on problems that require outside-the-box thinking;
Discussion sessions on enrichment topics: counting, probability, pi, etc...
Participation in contests (MathCounts);
Proofs: How do I convince myself and others that something is true
Mathematics beyond school: relation to art, music, etc…
Purpose: To give students a safe place to express themselves through music of all genres and styles.
Goal: For Students to collaborate and create music on their chromebooks and or instruments they own and or play. At the end of each semester, we host a concert here at Manhattan Middle School Auditorium in the Auditorium for students who would like to perform (not mandatory, but recommended). Students will be able to identify with others with similar interests in music styles and genres. Students will be able to develop self-advocacy skills and normalize identities through music production and creations. Music is a universal language that allows us to express ourselves and grow as individuals.
