What Is 8th Period?
8th Period is the period that does not have a classroom, a block in the schedule, or an individual teacher. It is the education that takes place between classes, at lunch, recess, before and after school. It is not so much about learning facts as it is about becoming the kind of person who can take the great education you receive at Noble Academy and putting it into practice to do great things in life. The main components of the program are:
- Building a stronger, more respectful, school community through the Bully Free Schools curriculum.
- Leadership and engagement opportunities through Student Senate and student advocacy.
- Team building activities that offer real world experience with collaboration, problem solving and critical thinking.
- Opportunities to contribute to the school and outside community through engagement in service projects and causes.
8th period activities and discussions will take place throughout the school day and throughout the school year. Students who engage in 8th period will find that they have more ownership of their school experience, more opportunities to discuss their successes in college and job interviews, and more pride in their experience and skills.
