Clubs & Activities
National Junior Honor Society
Meets every other month.
The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is a non-profit organization led by middle school students who have dedicated themselves to outstanding scholarship, service, leadership and character. The purpose of this organization is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, to develop character, and to encourage good citizenship in our students.
Next school year, STMS will be having a Student Ambassador Program. The purpose of the club is for these learners to have an active leadership role in welcoming new learners and creating and maintaining an accepting student environment. Below, I have listed some possible tasks/expectations of the Ambassadors:
- Provide an introduction for new learners starting during the school year that includes:
- A tour of the building, following the new learner’s schedule
- Help locating locker and opening if needed.
- Provide guidance with Empower, Office 365, and Teams.
- Be a buddy at lunch for new learners first several days.
- Take extra steps to ensure the student(s) feel connected to our school and are meeting other learners.
- Assist with materials used to welcome upcoming 6th graders (possible video to be shown to 5th graders).
The WAVE Channel 13 Student News
The WAVE is an ongoing tradition at STMS as the student produced and student run news channel. We air all of our shows on our YouTube channel, feel free to subscribe for updates about new content! The WAVE crew embodies some of our hardest working learners who work together to write scripts, anchor and record shows, and produce them for the rest of the student body. We focus on any and all school news, world news updates, birthdays, and other student celebrations. Currently, due to Covid-19, we are meeting twice a week on teams to record the show and produce 2 shows/week on YouTube. All 6-8th graders are welcome to apply!

Student Government Association
Student Government’s mission is to represent to the interests of the student body through the implementation of innovative programs, services, and initiatives that enrich student lives. The student government is a student association that allows students to express their interests and concerns directly to the representatives via events and activities. Student government members manage a variety of programs, organize events and activities, and support other students.
STMS Student Government representatives are learners from all grade levels, in good academic standing, and with no disciplinary referrals. Members must be professional, responsible, reliable, articulate, good listeners and able to put others’ needs before themselves.
