middle school shadow day | November 8, 2019 | 12:00pm-2:30pm
Los Gatos Christian School is pleased to announce our annual Middle School Shadow Day on November 8th, which is open to all current 5th – 7th grade students. Your child will have the opportunity to experience the day in the life of a student in Middle School at LGCS. Which includes the chance to talk one on one to current Middle School students, alumni that will be coming back just for this event and several teachers.
We have all been working very hard on this event to make this a special day they will remember and enjoy. We have tours, a “Game Show”, a delicious lunch on us from Chick-fil-a, a T-shirt and so many other fun things we have planned. So PLEASE mark your Calendar for this very important event!
If you RSVP by Oct. 23, your child will receive a LGCS Swag Bag filled with several items they will enjoy along with a T-shirt. We need to have your RSVP no later than Nov 5. for your child to get lunch on us. After that date of course they may attend we will unfortunately not be able to provide them lunch or the Swag Bag or other items due to the time frame.
We hope to see your children there, THEY WON’T WANT TO MISS THIS EVENT!
Leadership opportunities are available through our middle school Student Leadership program. Eighth grade officers are elected each year and grade level representatives are chosen each quarter. A teacher/advisor guides the students in leadership training, and officers attend training at the ACSI Leadership seminar. Student Leadership is responsible for promoting and organizing middle school activities, holiday celebrations, social functions, safety patrol, daily pledges, and often assists with the activities for elementary school children.
School spirit is sky high during this special week where students dress up in themed costumes each day. They also participate in class competitions and earn spirit points and prizes along the way. Daily themes and activities are chosen and promoted by Student Government representatives.
Outdoor Education Camp (Sixth Grade)
One of the highlights of 6th grade includes a week at Hume Lake Outdoor Education Camp. Students will participate in Christ-centered, hands-on learning experiences while they study the principles of earth and environmental science. In addition to their studies, students have the opportunity to take part in outdoor activities including archery, canoeing, swimming, black-out hide and seek, high-ropes course, and more. This five day/four night camp is held each October and provides a great opportunity to bond with classmates and teachers.
Mission Ready (Seventh Grade)
Seventh graders will focus on missions and community service. While there are plenty of fun, games, devotions and quiet time, there will also be an element of "roughing it" as we work to educate students about the joys and trials of missions work. Lessons and skills learned from this experience helps prepare them for a lifetime of service and advancing the Kingdom of God.
East Coast Trip (Eighth Grade)
The study of American history comes to life for our 8th grade students as they visit a wide variety of historic sites along the East Coast. Students will discover America's Christian heritage while they tour sites in Virginia, Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York. Their eight day/seven night tour will conclude with a Broadway musical in New York City. This memory making trip is highly encouraged, yet optional for all 8th graders. The trip is conducted each October and parents may attend as chaperones.
