2015-16 MMS Clubs and Activities


The basic purposes of our clubs, activities, and sports are to provide students with an opportunity to develop positive interests and activities for leisure time and to serve the school and the community.

Clubs and activities are organized in the fall each year. Listen to announcements and watch for posters explaining how to join. Club advisors may be called for answers to questions. Most clubs and activities meet at lunch or after school.
