Clubs and Activities




Advisor:  Rob Rogers

Each day begins with a live broadcast from CTV into each homeroom throughout the school. In the studio, students work together to deliver important announcements, highlight school activities, and report the forecast, lunch choices, and birthdays. Students work both behind, and in front of, the cameras. Videos presented on the show may feature a school event, and are often created and submitted by students. The morning news helps to keep our school community connected and informed.

Science Olympiad Advisor: Christina Brewer

Open to all middle school students, the Science Olympiad is one of the premier science competitions in the nation, providing standards-based challenges to nearly 15,000 schools each year.

This student-led competition involves teams of 7-10 students that perform in up to 23 different STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) events. Some events require constructing a project ahead of time. Others involve ‘on-the-spot’ application of engineering skills to solve a problem. In most events, students compete in pairs, and a typical student enters three different team events during a tournament.
