Inspiring Middle School students to be a positive force in their school community

Join us January 6, 2021 for WEBINAR ALL ABOUT OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM!

As an Episcopal school, we are called to love and honor one another despite our differences. We are called to practice empathy and understanding toward one another, always pursuing goodness, as well as knowledge. These are lofty goals—especially for middle school students. How do we work toward these goals in our middle school? One of the ways is through our Advisory program!

Some of the closest bonds students develop with faculty and peers are forged through their Advisory group. It helps to ensure each child at our Middle School feels a strong sense of belonging, is known, and is inspired and equipped to be a positive force in our school community and beyond.

Mr. Weiman brings you magic through video!

I have been teaching magic for over 25 years, and I have seen it be a transformative experience for so many kids of different ages, temperaments, interests, and backgrounds. I began learning magic when I was five years old, and I started delving deeply into it when I was in 5th grade. As I performed for friends, classmates, and family I loved the effect that it had on others.

Magic Introduction

 

Today, magic is an important part of my own life as I teach it to students at St. Stephen's and St. Agnes and perform it during school assemblies and while walking through our school buildings. In place of being together on campus, I will be sharing some magic tricks through video. Read on for tricks and reasons for learning magic...there just may be some tutorials coming through as well.
