For Big Sib Chair Applicants:

Hey! First of all, the Big Sib Chairs thank you for your interest in applying to be a Chair of the wonderful Big Sib Program for the 2018-2019 school year!

Being a Big Sib Chair is a huge, year-round time commitment. While it is a lot of work, it's extremely rewarding.

To become a Chair, you'll need to have a conversation with your Homeroom Leader about why you want to become chair and about your experience as a Big Sib. We will be talking to your Homeroom Leader to discuss your work as a Big Sib and if they think you would be an effective Chair. We also require recommendations from two little sibs. Remember to ask them politely and to give them sufficient time to fill it out. Make sure to explain to your little sibs what a Big Sib Chair is. Don't make them do the work--send them the link! The little sib recommendation form is here

New for this year, we will also be requiring a teacher recommendation. It is a short form, and they should be able to fill it out quickly and easily. They must hand it in by Friday, January 13th, so get it to them ASAP. You can find the form here. Please print it out for your recommender, and hand it to them in person.

Remember, they're doing you a favor.


  1. Big Sibs Chairs are expected to maintain a minimum of an 88 average, and not have a consistent pattern of lateness and/or cuts. In addition, applicants should have no serious, recent record of academic or disciplinary infractions.

  2. If you are not planning to work on your application in one sitting, put your answers in a Word document. You may submit your completed application at any time before the deadline.  

  3. All applications must be submitted by Sunday, January 8th, 2017 by 11:59 PM. Late applications will NOT be accepted!
