Eighth grade students in Ms. Benton’s art class at Middle School South created works inspired by Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky, a pioneer of abstract art. Whether the students were designing on a computer, painting clay bowls, drawing or painting on paper, Kandinsky’s bold style came through in their art work.

During Friday’s Advisory, students at Middle School South participated in different activities across grade levels to build self management skills. Sixth grade discussed how social media affects their daily lives and worked on strategies to connect with others in safe and appropriate ways. Seventh grade discussed peer pressure and demonstrated strategies on how to resist it through role playing activities. Eighth grade watched Vernon Hills High School VIP (Voices in Prevention) students perform skits that addressed common problems that arise in high school. Students were also able to ask questions related to transitioning to high school at the end of the presentation.

As their culminating Trimester 2 project, sixth grade ELA/ALA classes at Middle School South created board games based on novels they read independently. The board games reflected each novel’s setting, as well as the author’s use of figurative language, irony, conflict, and characterization. Students created great board games that their classmates enjoyed playing in class.
Bravo Chuck Naffier, Pat Cantagallo and the Middle School South and Middle School North Jazz Band students on a wonderful performance Wednesday night at the Vernon Hills High School Jazz Festival! Our directors and students did an outstanding job performing this evening!
On Saturday, Feb. 23, 25 Middle School South sixth-eighth grade Orchestra students participated in the NIMCon Solo and Ensemble Contest. They performed solos and in small groups for a judge at Palombi Middle School in Lake Villa. Everyone earned highest division I ratings, and of those 25 students, 10 students earned perfect scores! Most importantly, the students expressed themselves through music and showed lots of growth through the process of learning their pieces. The students had an absolutely wonderful experience and lots of fun in the process!
Great job to our sixth, seventh, and eighth grade bands yesterday evening as they prepared for their upcoming NIMCon Organizational Contest. The students truly shined and showed how much they have grown throughout the year. Great job Mr. Naffier and students!!!
