Clubs and Activities

A big part of middle school is exploring new interests, meeting other students, and getting involved. MPMS offers great extracurricular activities. A free late bus transports students home who participate in after-school activities.

Did you know that students may start clubs too? If you are interested in starting a new club or activity, find a staff member to sponsor it, and ask Ms. Tuttle, the principal, for approval. If you are looking for extra help academically, talk with your teachers to see if they stay after school. Whatever you do, try something new!
