At Midvale Middle School we strive to serve those around us. One way all of our 8th graders serve others is through the Make a Difference Project. 8th grade students research, design, carry out and reflect on a project that answers the question, "How will I make a difference?" Their projects are specific to their interests and reflect a need that is significant to them. The Make a Difference Project is broken down into four steps. 8th graders have completed the first two steps of the project. The first step was to complete research based on their interests and needs of their community. The second step was to design their project. 8th grade students are just beginning the third step which is to actually carry out their project. Once they have completed their project, they will move on to the final step which is to reflect on their project. We are so excited to see the wonderful service of our 8th graders. All of the Make a Difference Projects will be highlighted during our MYP Awards Night in May.
Midvale Middle students are signing pledges to be fearless and be kind during the month of November. For every pledge signed, the company Hasbro will give a toy to a child in need. In conjunction with the pledges made, our school is making a campus-wide effort to increase acts of kindness. When a student completes an act of kindness, he or she will leave a "Caring Card” behind. The student or adult receiving the act of kindness should then pay it forward and do something kind for someone at school or at home. Acts of kindness can be things like saying hi to a new friend, helping a teacher with his or her recycling, or taking out the trash at home. We hope to spread the goodness!
