Activities

A variety of activities including sports, clubs, student council, and yearbook are offered to students after school. Some activities are offered all year long, while others are offered seasonally. We also offer extracurricular opportunities in the arts including vocal and instrument ensembles. Information about these activities and meeting times are made daily on the morning announcements during homeroom.

Forensics Team

The word “forensics” stems from ancient theories about debate, performance, and argumentation. Like crime scene investigators, competitors use evidence as a tool to understand and theorize about the world. Intercollegiate forensics has come to include any speech that can be used as a persuasive tool.

Public speaking, in any of the competitive forms - platform, oral interpretation, or limited prep - allows students to speak to issues that concern them, putting their ideas and evidence out for others to see. As part of the forensics team you can sharpen your skills in public speaking, increase your confidence and poise, and be part of a team of talented and driven students.

Middle School Student Council

Our Middle School Student Council is an organization conducted by students and supervised by adults. The purpose of the student council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body. They help share students' ideas, interests and concerns with the school-wide community. 

The function of the student council is based upon parliamentary procedures.  Ideas are presented, voted upon and confirmed by the student body president. Any student that is interested in leadership, organizational behavior, event planning or becoming more involved in the school is welcome to become involved.

Yearbook Staff

The ultimate limited-edition book, yearbooks are one-of-a-kind keepsakes that our students and their families will refer to year after year. Students who are on the yearbook staff are in charge of taking and collecting photos throughout the year, writing captions and deciding on the book theme and design.
