Student and Faculty Hug and High Five at Sorting Ceremony

Middle school students were pumped up on the first day of school, partially because it was the first day, but more importantly because they were anxious to find out their destiny at the first ever Sorting Ceremony! Introducing a new house system in middle school, 5th-8th graders were randomly assigned to five different houses, with each house containing a mix of all four grades. Designed to create an increasingly positive and dynamic school climate that celebrates excellence, fosters school spirit, builds and strengthens relationships, and promotes a culture of belonging for all - the five houses each have their own name, color, symbol and characteristics, with house members shaping distinct personalities and values over time.
