What is 8 Gold?

Supportive Environment 8 Gold is…

We’re here to help! Academic support - come by before school, after school, or during mini-conference time… or use the team bulletin board Emotional Support - need to talk? Get something off your chest? We’re always here to listen. See any of us to make some time to come in and talk, or drop us an email

We support one another! Collaboration: Working together in classes and beyond Peer mediators: helping one another smooth out those ‘bumps in the road.’ Gold Time: Once every six days, we have time to get together to talk with and support one another. We plan activities, discuss concerns, and get to know each other beyond the classrooms. Have an idea for the team? This is the time!

Challenges! 8 Gold is… “ Every year teachers say that ‘next year will be a big step up,’ but it never seems true, until this year.” ~8 Gold Student, 2005

What to expect… Nightly work in each class Long term assignments: research papers, books, projects - we will help you plan accordingly We aim to create a consistent, balanced workload

Why we do it… Challenges lead to growth and confidence! “ I’ve learned not to be afraid to speak up and tell people my opinion, because it does matter. I have a voice.” ~8 Gold Student, 2005 “ I have never been challenged this much… I have never been pushed this far, never had to work this hard, and I have never been this proud.” ~8 Gold Student, 2006 “ The most valuable thing I learned this year is just because you want something, doesn’t mean you deserve it.” ~8 Gold Student, 2006 “ You can overcome any obstacle / task put in front of you if you set your heart to it” ~8 Gold Student, 2005 “ I learned so much – not just academically but life lessons as well.” ~8 Gold Student, 2008

Challenges lead to growth and confidence!

Active Learning 8 Gold is… “ I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” ~Confucius

Learning by Doing! Our Medieval Festival lets you live the time period! As a member of an acting company, you will perform Shakespeare in your own words!

Service Learning 8 Gold is…

“ I have found challenging my own perspectives and my comfort zone to be extremely rewarding and essential to personal growth, but more importantly, I have gained an appreciation for my own power to do good and make change in the community around me.” ~Frank Bergh, Washington University

Fund Raising The school - and team - does a lot of fund raising. We encourage students to bring ideas forward for ways to make a difference - from helping a peer going through difficult times, to organizing a fund raiser to “adopt” an endangered tiger, we expect our students to take the lead!

School Volunteering We have many opportunities for students to give in our own building! Each year, we clean the courtyard and school grounds, to help give ourselves pride in our surroundings.

Community Outreach Each year, we participate in the Walk for Hunger Students walk what they can, while others focus on fund raising in support of walkers. Families and alumni walk with us! In 2008, we had over sixty participants and raised over nine thousand dollars!

“ Wow… thinking back on this year and all the amazing memories, I think this one had to be one of the best. The whole day was fun, hilarious, as well as comforting, knowing that we were helping people who are hungry.” ~Deidre Ericson, 8 Gold 2004-2005

And, of course… FUN! 8 Gold is

Team Bowling Days! After school, we walk down to the bowling alley for some friendly competition.

Volleyball! Team Competitions! We have a friendly rivalry with 8 Red – last year, they beat us at human tables… can you take the trophy back??? Getting bored while waiting for the bus? Join a volleyball competition in the courtyard, or pick up a Chinese hackey-sack and see how long you can keep it going…

Hiking! This year is about challenging ourselves and “climbing those mountains” together – including Mount Monadnock! We will hike in September – we will pick a weekend day, and invite your families to join us! This way, we can kick off the year by getting to know each other outside of school, and build stronger bonds for the year.

Field Day! This is the day when Gold shines - competition with the other teams, plus teacher vs student volleyball, food and music… a full day of fun!
