At YISS, our goal is to provide your middle schooler with a positive and engaging learning environment, where they can explore, discuss, and learn about new ideas. Middle schoolers are in the midst of one of the most significant developmental periods of their lives as they grow and change so much physically, mentally, and socially. Sometimes this exciting growth makes these years tough to navigate. I believe that when we, as a community, work together to support our middle schoolers, much is achieved, and expectations are surpassed as students develop into the young men and women God intends them to be.
Our schoolwide theme this year is “Impacting the World by Investing in Others.” A truth about humans is our need for others. We need others to invest in us to help us learn and grow, but we also need to invest in others. Though middle schoolers are still growing up, they have so much to offer. This year, we hope to challenge our students to find ways they can invest in others to establish a lifelong habit of investing in people. What an impact this will have on our world both now and in the future!
