Student leaders at Murray Middle School, 2200 Buford Ave., St. Anthony Park, are stepping up in ways big and small that make a real difference in our community. Here are a few examples:
Where Everybody Belongs (WEB)—Our WEB leaders have supported the fifth-to-sixth-grade middle-school transition process from last spring and all fall through various activities. From visiting the elementary school, hosting sixth-grade orientation activities, designing and leading activities for foundations, and taking leadership on our anti-bullying campaign.
Dare 2 Be Real—This is a group of leaders whose mission is to take a lead in equity within our school community. They recently performed at an assembly and taught the school community about the impact of stereotypes.
National Junior Honor Society—This group is taking the lead on service to the school and has spent countless hours supporting school events, parent and student orientation, and the open house and iPad roll out. They are the first to step up when support is needed.
Genius Squad—This group of learners is also helping with the iPad roll out and support.
Wolf Ridge—Our Wolf Ridge leaders plan the five-day environmental and cultural retreat in November. Their role is to lead culture classes and support peers in this hands-on environmental learning experience.
