NEW - Junior High Community Club

All 7th and 8th grade students are invited to join our newest junior high club, JH Community Club. This club has combined National Junior Honors Society (NJHS), Junior High Student Government (JUCO), and Builders Club. These three clubs were merged because it was recognized that each had a similar purpose and often had the same students as members. 


The JH Community Club exists for the purpose of developing leaders, committing to community service, and spearheading junior high social activities and school spirit. The club will be involved in planning JH events and activities, creating social opportunities, and getting involved in numerous community service projects.


Any junior high student is invited to join our club and help to breathe some life and fun into junior high, while looking for opportunities to serve our community.

HS Key Club

Attention high school students—do you enjoy helping others? Join Key Club, a group of students dedicated to serving their community. We meet every other Friday at 7:30 AM. Contact Mrs. Mitchell at for more information.
