Activities

  • Bear Ambassador
     
    The Bear Ambassador Program was started as a way to help sixth grade students have a smoother transition into the middle school setting. It allows sixth grade students to become better acquainted with their school, fellow students, and themselves through a series of activities, events, and experiences throughout sixth grade. The Bear Ambassadors are a select group of eighth graders who lead sixth graders in many activities. They are chosen for their leadership, character, and school spirit. They must also represent and promote the Boyertown Middle Schools in the community. As a Bear Ambassador students will mentor small groups of sixth graders, act as guides for activities in our building and assist with other various events throughout the school year.

    Flex Period Enrichment

    Middle School West has a variety of fun clubs and activities that students are encouraged to participate in.  Many of our clubs are held during period 10 and there is something that will fit everyone’s interests.   In addition to period 10, there are afterschool and co-curricular organizations that students are encouraged to join.   We believe that a well-rounded student is a successful student.

    In order to participate in enrichment activities, students must meet several requirements. Students who are not enrichment eligible for a session can become eligible for the next session as long as they meet the criteria listed below. To be eligible to sign up for flex period enrichment activities, students must meet the following criteria:
    • No grades below a 70% in any class
    • No more than 2 missed assignments in any class
    • May not be on the restricted list

    We think extra-curricular and enrichment programs are an essential part of the over-all school experience. Students will succeed where their interest is the strongest. West tries to combine academic, enrichment, and extra curricular programs to help develop a well-rounded student.
