Middle School Clubs and Organizations
Golden Lion Book Club
Contact: Erin Twohig
The MS Book Club promotes reading for pleasure as well as developing both a good taste in reading selections and a lifelong interest in literature. We also strive to broaden our members’ reading interests and erudition through discussions of literary classics and works by international authors in translation. In addition to discussing what we read, we try teas and chocolates from around the world.
MS a cappella is a selected a cappella vocal group comprised of members of the Middle School. The group rehearses weekly and performs at Nobles' Choral Concerts. They also give occasional performances outside of school.

Middle School Multicultural Student Association (MSMSA)
Contact: Thomas Forteith
The Middle School Multicultural Student Association (MSMSA) provides a nurturing environment in which students can discuss issues of social justice while they explore their own identities. We seek to celebrate our diversity of experience and to educate our community as we work to create a safe environment for students of all backgrounds. MSMSA is open to all students.
Middle School Service Committee
Contact: Maryanne MacDonald
The Middle School Service Board is made up of Middle School student volunteers. Anyone is welcome to participate, and students may attend as their workloads permit. The Board creates and implements community service activities on behalf of the Middle School community. The success of this program relies on locating organizations, which will help foster and nurture students' sense of social responsibility.
Student Life Committee is comprised of four middle school students—a boy and a girl from Class V and VI—who are elected by their classmates to oversee weekly Middle School Assemblies in addition to organizing Middle School social activities throughout the year.
