OBMS School Counselor Sponsored Clubs
Being a new student at school can be a rough transition. Berkshire Buddy was created to help our new students feel welcomed and comfortable even on the first day of school. Members of Berkshire Buddy will meet our new students on their first day at OBMS and make sure they do not sit alone at the lunch table. Members will also check in with the new students throughout the year to make sure that their transition has been a good one.
ROX (Ruling Our Experiences)
The mission of ROX is to create generations of confident girls who control their own relationships, experiences, decisions and futures. The program is run by OBMS counselors and Syntero clinician. The program utilizes research and evidence-based programming to simultaneously impact girls, educate and support the adult influencers in girls' lives and improve the societal conditions that have the potential to negatively impact girls.
When guests and new students arrive at Berkshire, they are greeted by our Sentinel Ambassadors. Members of this club are chosen to welcome our guests, give them a tour of the school and answer any questions they may have about OBMS.
WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) LEADER INFORMATION
Our WEB program was established to help create a safe and welcoming environment for all students at OBMS. To create that environment our WEB Leaders teach lessons to our 6th graders throughout the year on kindness, compassion, leadership, diversity, perseverance, diligence, integrity, trustworthiness, etc. The School Counselors collaborate with our 8th grade WEB leaders on a monthly basis to figure out the themes and goals of each lesson and how it will positively impact our student body and school environment. Teacher recommendations and student applications are a part of the WEB Leader selection process.
