The HOUSE System is designed for St. John Middle School students to gain a sense of community and accountability. This is accomplished through mixed grade level groups (Houses) which consist of students in grades 5 – 8 led by adult mentors. In order to reinforce doing the right thing, students are awarded points for their House through positive actions. Examples can include serving in Wednesday worship, assisting a classmate or picking up trash. House groups take pride in the points their group earns and expect their members to value making positive decisions and contributions. In addition, the House model also reinforces the leadership development and spiritual growth aspects of our school’s Core Values. Students within each House engage in a variety of activities ranging from student-led devotions to team-building exercises. As a result, students deepen their commitment to their Savior, school and one another.
