Clubs and organizations are a great way to help develop character and the skills that will benefit you in school, your career, and in life. Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

First Priority Club
The goal of the First Priority Club is to connect the church to reach the campus for Christ! Student-led clubs meet every week on public middle and high school campuses and the Gospel is shared each month. First Priority builds a bridge from the campus to the church, where students can be disciplined and nurtured in a local body of believers.
Future Florida Educators of America [FFEA]
The FEA (Future Educators of America) is not only for those interested in the field of education, but for those interested in leadership as well. FEA provides students with the opportunity to volunteer throughout school, help fellow peers, and learn important skills such as responsibility and leadership.
Meetings will also be announced on an as-needed basis via the morning announcements.
Meetings typically last for an hour and club members must make arrangements for a ride home.
The Math Club is open to all students in grades 6-8. We meet once a week to work together on solving challenging math problems. We learn how to analyze, develop strategies, and think critically! We will be competing in at least one competition this year against other Broward County middle schools.
