Doing something new for the first time sends a zing up your spine and builds that muscle of courage to keep trying new things. At New Millennium Secondary School (NMSS), we believe that to make academics work, it’s all about relationship building and having a bit of fun. Showing our students that we are putting ourselves out there every day builds trust and a sense of safety that really makes all the difference.
For every moment of seriousness, academic pursuit, and focused action, we all need to experience some laughter or silliness to stay healthy, friendly humans. We at NMSS are here for all of it – supporting each other through the challenges and dancing together through the fun.
Lip Sync Battles + Tik-Tok Dances
Whatever skills our students bring us, we celebrate creatively and share with our community. One fun school-wide game that the past year brought us was the uprising of lip sync battles and tik-tok dance-offs. From every teacher to the newest student, we connect as humans who build safety, trust, and healthy competitions to keep putting ourselves out there – just for the joy of it.
From our school counselor and principal posting a music video dancing in masks, to an all-in teacher/ student/ staff dodge-ball game or spontaneous beach day, we are in this together. Check out our NMSS Instagram to share in the fun and inspiration.Open Doors for Spontaneous Fun
We truly live the open door policy here at NMSS. Every day, students walk by our command center, which is an open room with no doors that hosts our principal and staff offices. Setting ourselves up in a way that encourages spontaneous visits delivers the message that we are serious about supporting our students – and we’re open for spontaneous fun!
Staying young at heart while we do the work of becoming and being adults is one of the greatest adventures in life. At NMSS, we build lasting, supportive relationships with our entire community and help each other to enjoy the ride. Talk to us about enrolling your student today.
