As middle school is a time for exploring new interests and deepening learning, Bright Water Waldorf School offers a series of extracurricular activities for our students that engage them socially, academically, and physically.
Our after school clubs empower our students to challenge themselves both academically and creatively. Our Math Club participates in regional competitions, expands on classroom knowledge, and encourages a love for math. Yearbook Club provides a opportunity for students to own a number of equally critical roles for the team: photographer; page designer; editor. This yearlong collaboration allows the unique attributes of each class – and Bright Water Waldorf School as a whole – to be celebrated in print. Our daily Homework Club establishes a reliable hub for students to receive additional support from teachers while giving them a quiet, concentrated environment to continue learning.
Active movement is vital to the healthy growth of middle school students. Bright Water Waldorf School nourishes that need through our strong athletics department. Our sports include Ultimate Frisbee in the fall and spring, Cross Country, Basketball, and Volleyball. BWWS competes through the CYO league for Cross Country, Volleyball, and Basketball. Ultimate Frisbee is organized through Disc NW.
BWWS athletes consistently maintain Waldorf principles on the field: physical, social, and emotional development are still the most important objectives. There are no cuts. Our student athletes develop their individual skills while simultaneously cultivating an awareness and respect for the ‘spirit of the game.’ Sportsmanship, teamwork, and fairness are important values we instill through our athletics program.
