What happens to the level of positive energy and active participation in engaging activities when students are encouraged to interact much more readily and work with others who share similar interests?
Colchester Middle School’s schedule includes a weekly opportunity for students to participate in a wide variety of teacher-directed clubs in an academically oriented effort to further promote a positive climate and a comfortable learning environment. The clubs also provide additional opportunities for students to work collaboratively with others to learn a new skill and make a positive contribution. In this way, students from across houses and grade levels can work with one another toward common goals.
Students can select from an array of clubs ranging from those designed to hone a particular skill to others focusing upon giving back to the community through various outreach projects, including:
- Art 2/Farm to School;
- Caring Cougars;
- Community Service;
- the student journalism group Cougar Chronicle;
- Peer Mentors;
- Science and Engineering;
- Student Council;
- Study Hall;
- Technology; and
