Clubs and Organizations
Capitan Middle School provides a variety of clubs and organizations for its student body to develop leadership skills, a sense of community, and a doorway to various avenues of interest. If you would like to join one of our after-school clubs, simply contact one of its student members for details, or see each club’s specific teacher sponsor.
Future Farmers America
FFA is an organization that develops the skills and leadership of the next generation of farmers and ranchers. Linked to agriculture classes, FFA seeks to enrich education with hands-on experiences that build confidence, economic understanding, interpersonal skills, volunteerism, patriotism, and citizenship. At Capitan, we offer FFA to all 8th grade students enrolled in Vocational Agriculture. Mr. Proctor is the club sponsor.
Capitan Middle School sponsors competitive academic teams in the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. Teams travel to competitions within our district to show off their knowledge in a variety of subjects. To join, students need to show a history of:
- 2.75 GPA
- Good attendance
- No disciplinary actions
Occasionally Knowledge Bowl activities take students away from class. We expect students to make up any class assignments or tests they miss because of club participation.
National Junior Honor Society
Membership in the Capitan Middle School Honor Society is both an honor and a responsibility. Selection for membership is based on scholarship, citizenship, leadership, and character. To be eligible, students need:
- a 3.5 GPA for 3 consecutive nine-week periods
Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)
SADD exists to encourage students in their use of positive peer pressure to influence other teens to make safe and healthy decisions. We provide awareness of the dangers of drugs, alcohol, driving impairment through texting, bullying, and gang-related activities. We are a supportive community of peers who encourage one another to think about the consequences of their decision-making and offer fun and healthy alternatives to prevalent teenage risks.
The Student Council of Capitan Middle School is the student government body of the school. Students in all grade levels may participate. In the fall of each year, students elect their student council officers (president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and representatives). The student council is responsible for class fundraising and activities within the school.
