First of all, it is NOT about solving crimes by autopsying dead bodies and finding telltale clues on tires treads and door handles. (Sorry, CSI fans!) Forensics is competitive public speaking, in a performance format.  At the middle school level, it consists of the following two categories: Interpretive Events – Duo, Humorous, Dramatic, and Storytelling

Expressive Events – Original Oratory, Extemporaneous Speaking, and Public Forum (Debate)

Image of the Future Farmers of America logoAdviser – Lisa Hall

“Future Farmers of America” was founded by a group of young farmers back in 1928. Their mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. They taught us that agriculture is more than planting and harvesting– it’s a science, it’s a business and it’s an art.

FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet those challenges by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways.

So today, we are still the Future Farmers of America. But, we are the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers and Future Entrepreneurs of America, too.

Adviser-Denise Flanagan

Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS and NJHS. NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. The National Honor Society (NHS) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) are the nation’s premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle-level students. More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.

Quien Sabe Mas?

The Spanish Quiz Bowl Club at GCMS focuses on using Spanish in real-world situations. Students learn Spanish to prepare them to communicate with others through oral language, print, and media. They are also encouraged to learn about the culture of the  Hispanic countries…So get ready to virtually travel around the Spanish-speaking countries and learn the language.
