School FamiliesEach 8th grade student acts as the head of a "School Family". Each family has students from every grade. Various activities are planned for the families throughout the school year including community awareness efforts (such as the Thanksgiving food drive), family lunches, and school spirit activities.
The largest school spirit activity is the Junior Olympic Games. Held every year, usually on the Friday before Memorial Day, this event includes a parade of flags and costumes from countries each class has studied, followed by field games with the “School Family” put on by parent volunteers.
