Debate Club
Mrs. Reid and Mr. Samon

Given the demonstrated importance of oral literacy in high school and beyond, it is particularly important to train young adolescent students in public speaking and debate, especially if he/she is considering an occupation in the career cluster of Law, Public Safety, Corrections, and Security. Debate practice in the middle grades allows students to build skills they will need in high school and beyond. Debating is “active learning,” a process of involving students in an activity while they reflect critically about what it is they are doing. A few of the skills debate students will learn throughout the school year from this program are research competence, media literacy, reading comprehension, argument literacy, evidence evaluation, summarization/outlining, public speaking, floor management, and civility.

Environmental Club
Mrs. Sargeant

We are more than just picking up your trash.  The purpose of the club is to create awareness of environmental issues, such as protection, conservation, preservation, and restoration, with an emphasis on educating and empowering students. Students who are interested in environmental advocacy and awareness are encouraged to join.  We also support community efforts, such as Department of Natural Resources, who needs thousands of empty used water bottles (caps on) for a project at Palmetto Sportsman’s Classic in March 2020. We support our school arts program by saving empty water bottles, bulletin board paper and much more.  And finally, the environmental clubs supports the Ronald McDonald House by collecting can tabs, which they in turn recycle to help raise monies.  The mission of RMHC is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. A world where all children have access to medical care, and their families are supported and actively involved in their children's care.
