6th & 7th Grade –
Students met in the gym for part of the period with Mrs. Kahn to encourage students to continue to work hard and behave positively for the final trimester of the year. The other part took place in homeroom where students discussed their current year and any concerns they have about this year or next in a Town Hall style conversation. Some of the topics discussed during the Town Hall conversations included: handling stress, homework/grades, self-advocating, school safety.
8th Grade – 
Students from Vernon Hills High School provided skits to students about what life is like in High School. 

Middle South had their first Advisory for the year on Friday, September 2nd.  Students spent extra time in their homerooms playing icebreaker games to set the stage for greater relationship building.  Congratulations to 6th grade for winning the first color wars competition! Each team also picked their team names for the year.  Advisory is off to a great community-building start!
