Middle School House System

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Joshua 24:15

All middle school students are divided into three houses.  Each house contains an equal number of boys and girls from the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades.  Each student has been randomly placed in a house and will remain with that same house throughout his or her middle school years.  Each house contains an average of 19 students.

There is an overwhelming benefit for all students involved. Mixing students from all middle school grades in each house provides more opportunities for students to interact and work cooperatively with peers from each grade level. Sixth graders feel more relaxed moving from fifth grade into middle school.

Houses acquire and compete for points by participating in a variety of activities.  These include activities in the areas of church ministry, community service, BJCS circle drive duty, contribution to school life, and helping others.   Also, activities at house-wide meetings count toward individual and house points.

House names are based on a patron saint, with a color and motto to represent their house.  These elements of the house remain constant from year to year.  Our House are: Frances House, Patrick House & Rother House.
