Phillipsburg Middle School Sponsored Clubs and Activities
Drama Club:
The Newspaper Club is open to all Middle School students. We are currently working on a new name for the club for next year. The Suzy Gazette is Phillipsburg Middle School's new approach to sharing its news with the school and community! Updates are made to the Suzy Web-site throughout the year, about two months, to share the events and activities of the students at PMS. The club meets all year long from September to June. Anyone interested in using their creativity, and has a desire to make a difference in the middle school, is strongly encouraged to join.
National Junior Honor Society:
The National Junior Honor Society is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship.
Students are eligible for NJHS after they have done the following:
* Earned 4 consecutive marking periods of 90 or above in ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Physical Education
* Completed an application containing evidence to show the below information:
  1. List all extra-curricular activities in which you have participated in school or while attending school. Include clubs, teams, musical groups, etc., and major accomplishments in each.
  2. Leadership Positions: List all elected or appointed leadership positions held in school or community activities. Only those positions in which you were directly responsible for directing or motivating others should be included. For example, elected student body, class, or club officer; committee chairperson; team captain; newspaper editor; or community leader.
  3. Community Service: List any community service which you have participated in and note any major accomplishment in each. These should be any service outside of school in which you participated for the betterment of your community. For example: church groups, clubs sponsored outside the school, Boy or Girl Scouts, volunteer groups, or community art endeavors.
  4. An essay discussing one of the pillars of NJHS.
NJHS meets from August through June and has 7th and 8th graders, with an Induction ceremony held in the fall of each school year. During the course of the year, NJHS students show a dedication to service projects including Relay for Life, Mini Thon, Pennies for Patients, working at the Soup Kitchen, and numerous other activities.
