MIDDLE SCHOOL CLUBS

ISB offers a variety of after-school and free-period activities to support and enhance the personal, social, emotional, physical, and creative growth of our Middle School students. Sample offerings are listed below.

STUDENT COUNCIL

led by Rotana Suy & Danielle Valenti

Students can develop leadership skills and learn about fundraising to help their local and global community. The Middle Student Council is comprised of four executive positions and eight class representatives. Meetings take place once a week during lunch throughout the year. They help plan fun activities and provide volunteer opportunities throughout the year.

YEARBOOK

led by Patricia McDougall

Students will develop their design and technology skills and use their creativity as they put together the ISB yearbook. Middle School students can earn community service hours for working on the yearbook. Meetings take place once a week for 10 weeks.

MIDDLE SCHOOL ATHLETICS

International School of Brooklyn offers three athletic seasons for Middle School students, including two team sports and one individual club sport. This year, ISB is offering soccer (fall), basketball (winter), and track club (spring). The Athletics department aims to develop athletes who demonstrate good sportsmanship by showing respect to teammates, officials, and opponents. The ISB Dragons are part of a middle school athletic league called the MSAL. ISB organizes soccer and basketball games with a large community of independent schools, including schools from both Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Soccer

ISB Dragons soccer meets for three practices per week. During these sessions, students practice various techniques that improve their ability to play soccer. Students work on footwork, dribbling, passing, strategy, and teamwork during this fall season. Team members scrimmage each practice, and games are scheduled with other schools for interscholastic competition.

Basketball

ISB Dragons basketball meets for three practices a week. Student athletes run drills and activities that progressively teach the fundamentals of basketball. Skills that are focused on include agility, hand-eye coordination, ball handling, passing, catching, flexibility, conditioning and teamwork. Basketball can help develop cardiovascular endurance and develop both upper and lower body strength. Students have fun, socialize, and build teamwork. Strong relationships translate into good health. Exercising in a group also tends to lead to better continued participation. Played alone or in groups, basketball is a great sport to learn.

Track Club

Student-athletes have the opportunity to learn about the importance of cardiovascular endurance, such as their heart rate, running capacity, and how to maintain good pace when jogging. Different obstacles will be introduced to motivate and improve their abilities. A Dragons customized T-shirt will be provided to each participant.

As a P.E Teacher and Coach, I encourage students that plan to continue playing sports like soccer and basketball to join the track club.

Club Getaway 2018

This year, PE Department Head Xavier Huc led 31 6th Graders and four other chaperones (Director of Middle School Richard Brownstone and teachers Sara Fernandez Valladares, Meena Negandhi, and Patricia McDougall) to Club Getaway in Kent, Connecticut, for three days and two nights of activities, games, team-building, and fun. Trips like these are especially important because 6th Grade is a major entry point for new ISB students. While many of our students have been here since Preschool or Lower School, some have just joined us in Middle School. By taking the entire grade out of town—and removing all academic pressure and outside commitments—ISB gives the new and returning students some time to acclimate to one another, build new friendships, and come back to Brooklyn as a new ensemble.

7th Grade Adventures in Monteverde, Costa Rica

Once we landed in Costa Rica, we were welcomed by our guide and we began our bus trip to Monteverde. About an hour later, we stopped to have lunch, which the students called "una comida deliciosa.” After lunch, we continued our journey, during which we marveled at the natural beauty of the countryside and spotted several animals such as cows, horses, dogs, and even goats. The bus ride was filled with exclamations of “Wow!”, “Look at that!" and "Did you see that?"

7th Grade Language Acquisition Trip to Quebec

Cette année, nos élèves de cinquième ont eu la chance de partir en voyage linguistique du 6 au 11 juin dans la province du Québec au Canada et de visiter les villes de Montréal et de Québec. Nous vous souhaitons un bon visionnage de l'album photo ci-dissous!
