A $3.00 fee per session is charged to help cover the costs of materials. There is a class limit of 20 students per session and advance sign up is necessary. Mrs. Fitts is the Art Club sponsor, and Mrs. Wassel is the Science Club sponsor.
5th-8th grades participate in the local Crawford County Illinois History Fair. Each student presents a research project that relates to Illinois history. The project includes an essay and a form of presentation of the research. Jr. Highers have the opportunity to advance to the regional and state levels of the competition.
6th-8th grade students write and give a speech each year of Junior High. The topic varies from year to year. Students learn to follow the given prompt, conduct research, organize their thoughts, and present information orally. Modern Woodmen of America hosts the speech each year and provides the materials for success. Students choose whether or not to present their speech at the local contest.
