Clubs and Intramurals
The academic skillbowl is made up of students in grades 6, 7, and 8 who practice and then compete with four other schools in the county. Each competition consists of 4 rounds of 5 questions in the areas of math, science, social studies, English, and general knowledge. Students compete to see who can answer questions the fastest.
The academic superbowl is a theme centered competition. Students study the content area and then compete with many other schools around the state in one round of 25 questions for each subject area of math, science, social studies, English, and general knowledge. Individual and team awards are given.
Science Fair at Northside Middle School is an opportunity for our students to showcase their work and explore their individual interests. It is a vital way to reinforce the scientific method and demonstrate research-based science.
The Northside Titans have three cheerleading squads. Each team consists of six members. The 7th and 8th squads cheer at home football games. After football season ends, try-outs for the 6th grade squad are held. During basketball season all three squads cheer for the Northside basketball teams when they play at home. The cheerleaders practice two times per week. The cheerleaders have made a commitment to their school and proudly cheer on the Titans throughout the sports seasons.
Students audition for a production each school year. Drama is open to any student grades 6-8.
Garden and Exercise Club
Students maintain the Northside greenhouse, learn about the care of different plants, and exercises to keep them health. Garden and Exercise Club is open to any student grades 6-8. They meet every Monday from 3:15-4:00 in Room 100.
The Writing Club derived its beginnings from a core group of students who longed for the Young Authors competition and who found writing to be an outlet for their emotions. We have a wide range of abilities, races, and other diverse groups represented. I provide prompts and we begin each meeting writing, “I am thinking of….” This is a purging activity to calm us all down and help our creativity flow. Students write and perform songs, poems, and read on-going short stories.
Over the past three school years, we have become a family; we number anywhere from 15 members to 30 members. Writing Club is a place where all points of view are accepted and applauded.
FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes)
Students meet with fellow athletes to discuss the role of Jesus Christ in athletics. FCA is open to any student grades 6-8. FCA meets every Friday in the Choir Room from 7:30 until 8:00.
Manga Club is a great way to get acquainted with Manga: the Art of the Japanese Comic book!
We will be learning to draw in the Manga style, reading plenty of Manga books and viewing Anime films as well as learning about Japanese pop culture and the Japanese language throughout the school year.
