After School Activities
The club meets one night per week after school from October through February in room 215A. We host the Morton Invitational Chess Tournament in November and also attend the Tazewell County Tournament and IESA State Tournament. We also compete in a FUN student vs. faculty tournament in December.
Scholastic Bowl is a great way to flex your mental muscle. A team competition that relies on quick reflexes and clear thinking, participants get the opportunity to match wits with fellow junior high students from around the area. The Scholastic Bowl season runs from late January into early May.
The school musical holds auditions usually the last week of October and rehearsals start immediately after casting. Most students will have rehearsal 4 nights a week after school. A weekly rehearsal schedule is given in advance. Close to performance, occasional evening rehearsal time may be necessary. There is no cost, but students may be expected to provide their costume depending on the show and the costume requirements. Performances for this year are January 26, 27, 28.
Small Group Acting (3-5 participants)
Three to five performers characterizing three or more persons presenting one selection. Time limit: 5-10 minutes.
