Drama club sponsors the after school productions at Blackmon Road Middle School. In the 2016-2017 school year we sponsored two productions, a fall play and spring musical. Each production has a separate audition. If you are cast in the production you will receive a rehearsal schedule. You do not have to be onstage to be in Drama Club. We have many off stage jobs. In addition, throughout the year we will have various meetings to learn theatre skills that are process based rather than production based. This opportunity is perfect for students who were unable to get the Theatre Arts elective.

There is a fall team and a spring team for which golfers must tryout each season. The program is run by the Columbus Valley Middle School (CVMS) Golf League, which serves every middle school golfer with the highest level of sincerity, fairness, courtesy, and respect through The First Tee core values.
There is currently a participation fee of $80 to cover costs for each match and tournament sponsored by the CVMS. Fees are paid at the beginning of each season, as well as the price of a team shirt, if needed.
There are Varsity, JV, and B-team divisions. Tryouts are usually held in late August for the fall season and late February for the spring season. Each season consists of a 2-hour rules seminar, practices, 6 regular season matches, and a City Championship tournament. The top 24 golfers from the city in the fall league will compete in a Chairman’s Cup tournament held at Green Island Country Club, and the top 16 golfers from the city in the spring league will participate in a Sweet Sixteen tournament held at Columbus Country Club and Green Island Country Club.

Velocity is a program for 7th and 8th grade students that helps students live with integrity and serve as positive role models for their peers. All the students sign a contract to be drug and alcohol free and sexually abstinent for the next year. There is an in-school and an out-of-school component. At each school with a Velocity program, the upper-classmen go into classrooms of lower-classmen and present lessons on topics like peer pressure, stress, relationships, family, etc. They talk to the younger students about their own experiences and encourage them to make positive choices. Out of school, Velocity hosts events and activities for TA/Velocity students across the city where they can have fun without being confronted with drugs or alcohol.
