Extracurricular Activities

The National Junior Society is a national recognition program. It is a co-curricular activity that supports the educational goals of the school. Membership is a privilege for students, not a right. It is open to all students who meet the five established criteria of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character. There is not an application for membership. An eligible student completes a “student activity information form.” This form is intended to provide the Faculty Council with relevant information to support the student’s candidacy. Student activity information forms will be available to students in early January. As there are many components to this document, it is important that students get started as soon as possible.

Builders Club is the largest service organization for middle school and junior high students, with more than 45,000 members worldwide. It is a student-led community service organization that operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. Community-based Builders Clubs can also be established at churches, libraries, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, lodges or similar facilities. A Kiwanis club, composed of like-minded, service-oriented people from the community, serves as the club’s sponsor.

Builders Club is structured on the local club level but is supported by the Kiwanis International Office in Indianapolis, Indiana, which provides guidelines, programs, and opportunities to relate to teenagers from countries worldwide. (http://www.buildersclub.org/Discover/WhoWeAre.aspx)
