Offering activities for our students in a variety of settings is a priority in our middle school program.

Whether providing authentic learning experiences through guest speakers and field trips or providing co-curricular and extra-curricular activities such as student council, chess club, and athletics, HLCS strives to educate each unique student through a well-rounded middle school experience.

The HLCS athletic program, which is affiliated with BCCSSAA ( and GVISSAA ( ), includes cross-country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, track & field, floor hockey and badminton.

Our primary activity for students is geared towards building student community by breaking down grade and age barriers. Every week students meet in Spirit Teams which are comprised of a mixture of grade 6-8 students. Throughout the year, this Spirit Team will act as a weekly support system for students, a place where weekly announcements are shared, and once a month Spirit Teams will compete in a friendly competition against other Spirit Teams in an activity planned by the Student Council. Monthly activities provide opportunities for team growth while earning points towards winning the Dotzler Cup which is presented at our annual Awards Ceremony in June.
