Middle School Extracurricular Activities

Art Club

The Liberty Middle School Art Club is open to all students in grades 6-8 who are interested and want to have more instruction in art, including those who may want to pursue a career in the arts. Art Club meets after school on Tuesdays from 3-4 p.m. and involves the students participating in fun and thought-provoking art projects that go above and beyond those done in their normal art classes. These projects could include but are not limited to ceramic bowl making, mural painting, crafts, puppet making and different types of painting and sculpture. The projects will be designed to hone students’ artistic skills and get them better prepared for the types of lessons they will be doing in the high school, as well as to give the students an outlet for their creativity beyond art class.

Chess Club

Students meet to play chess. Instruction in playing the game is provided. Students at all levels of play are encouraged to attend.

Math Counts

Students meet to work on math problems from their class or special problems provided by the advisor.

National Junior Honor Society

The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character.

Purposes

Five main purposes have guided chapters of NJHS from the beginning:

  • to create enthusiasm for scholarship;
  • to stimulate a desire to render service;
  • to promote leadership;
  • to encourage responsible citizenship; and
  • to develop character in the students of secondary schools.

Membership Qualifications

To become a member of NJHS, you must be selected as a candidate by your chapter’s faculty council. Students who meet their chapter’s cumulative GPA requirement are then considered for membership on the basis of service, leadership, citizenship and character. Members may be asked to complete a candidate form created and distributed by your local chapter. Membership is determined by a majority vote of the faculty council, following an evaluation of candidates’ qualifications for membership.

Role Playing Game Club

The tabletop RPG club affords students the opportunity to work together to solve a common goal. Students will hone their math, reading comprehension, and public speaking skills, all while having fun!

Ski Club

The club travels to the Holiday Mountain Ski Area for downhill skiing and snowboarding whenever the area has snow.

Yearbook

The students create and organize the middle school yearbook starting in September and ending in early May.
