Clubs & Organizations

Middle School students have opportunities to join clubs and organizations that focus on the arts, community service, multicultural awareness, and other interests. Participation in clubs is a great way to get to know others with common interests, develop leadership skills, help the community, or just have a good time doing something you enjoy. We encourage self-reliance, knowledge of oneself, and a capacity for leadership.

Student Leadership

Students are given a voice in the Middle School through Leadership Council. Each homeroom elects one representative to serve on the Council to work on student-centered issues such as Spirit Week, Middle School Dances, and snack choices. Because students are taking more initiative in the life of the school, they are expected to take on more responsibility as leaders of the school. Outside of Leadership Council students are able to express leadership in group projects and clubs.

Clubs & Activities

There are many club offerings at the Middle School, and many students find one or more of interest. The club options vary from year to year and are formed by student interest. All give students the opportunity to learn new skills and follow special interests. Activities are not required, but we encourage all students to participate.

Currently students may opt to join the following clubs and activities:

Art Club

Tuesdays from 4:00-5:00 PM.

Students will explore mural art as they work on two major projects this year. In the Fall, we will work on a mosaic mural as part of The Family Cooperative's community art project. The second project will be to design artwork that will become a permanent installation in the new LLC. For this project, students will explore aspects of the community identity and consider how artowrk can reflect, impact, and even inspire the larger community.


Wednesdays from 8:00-9:00 AM.

Do you like to sing? Do you want your inner diva to shine? Chorus meets weekly to prepare for concerts throughout the year! We learn songs, proper singing techniques and more! Repertoire is varied, and can be pop, Broadway, movie music, classical, folk songs, a cappella and more! Students can suggest songs to sing! Looking to add a possible video/image component to accompany songs this year---interested? See Ms Gellar!

Science Club

Tuesdays from 4:00-5:00 PM.

Middle school students will have an added opportunity to expand their knowledge of science, invention, and environment after school every Tuesday, 4 to 5pm. Activities will vary based on student interest, but may include building design challenges, candy chemistry, holograms, growing crystals, and lasers!

Community Service Club

Value in volunteering

Mondays from 4:00-5:00 PM.
