‘Big Sibs’ program creates 9th grade advisory board

Middle school chaplain Rabbi Emily Feigenson has revitalized the “Big Sibs” program by creating advisory boards made up of freshman who will help the ninth graders bond with their “little sibs” more effectively. These advisory boards will create activities such as a planned Dance Dance Revolution game and a field day, where the pairs of “sibs” can bond.

Feigenson created the program four years ago with the intention of “mak[ing] the experience of coming into Harvard-Westlake less intimidating and more friendly,” she said.
