Clubs

Drama Club

Drama club sponsors the after school productions at Blackmon Road Middle School. Every year we try to sponsor 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.

Teacher Cadets

Blackmon Road Middle School Teacher Cadets Club is in partnership with CSU’s “Go To Teach Program”.  The Teacher Cadets club allows middle school students an opportunity to explore teaching as a career.

Students that join our club will design and plan an actual 15-minute mini-lesson to teach to 2nd grade students.

Blackmon Road students will compete in February, here at BRMS, for the opportunity to represent BRMS in the District Teacher Cadet Teaching Competition.  The winning BRMS student will compete with other middle school Teacher Cadet winners at a local elementary school.

The winning students receive prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.

The highlight of our yearly time together is the field trip to CSU the first week of March.  Students get to tour the main and downtown campuses of CSU and have lunch in the dining hall at main campus.

BRMS Teacher Cadets club is a great way to expand your thinking on careers that will be available to you when you graduate.

Velocity

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.
