We currently offer the following clubs for students:*
Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books is open to all middle school students and requires that students read select books for comprehension, memorize titles and authors, and be able to discuss the books they’ve read with others in the club. Each student participating in Battle of the Books will read an “expert set” of 7-8 books from the NCSLMA list of 22 titles and become familiar with the characters, plot, setting, and details of their “expert set” before going to our county-wide competition. Winners advance to regional and state competitions.
Forensics involves public speaking competitions. Students compete in interpretive (Humorous, Duo, Dramatic, or Storytelling), public speaking (Original Oratory), or debate (Public Forum or Extemporaneous Speaking) categories. With the exception of Extemporaneous Speaking, students will prepare their pieces/arguments to perform at competitions in advance. All interpretive and public speaking pieces must be memorized. Students will need to rehearse their piece at home daily and be prepared to present it in front of the coaches and team members during practice for constructive feedback. There are four regular tournaments held throughout the school year. There are also regional and state competitions for those who qualify.
Girls Who Code
Girls Who Code is an organization that’s on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does. Girls can join a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models where they learn to see themselves as computer scientists. Participants will learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals, and functions that form the basis of all programming languages and work in teams to complete a computer science impact project that solves a real-world problem in the community.
Model United Nations (UN)
This club allows students to dive into world topics and have interesting discussions and competitions about global news and issues.
This is a local chapter of a multi-city Christian organization. This club focuses on building leadership skills, character, and Christian values. The goal is to make the school a better place for all who attend. Students will have the opportunity to participate in community service projects and other creative activities designed to help teens live out their faith in a practical way. Weekly meetings are student-led.
SistaKeeper is an all-girls club designed to build healthy self-esteem, a sense of sisterhood, community awareness and purpose. SistaKeeper empowers young women to be inspired to develop their mind, body, and spirit into women with a strong sense of self and purpose, dedicated to making a difference in the lives of themselves, and their community. During our meetings, we will conduct SistaKeeper Circles. Circle talks will focus on building self-esteem, leadership awareness, diversity, friendship/relationship building, body image, nutrition, conflict resolution, community awareness, etc. The SistaCircle’s focus is to nurture interpersonal development.
The purpose of the NCIMS Spanish Club is to expose students to Hispanic culture, to promote cultural diversity among its members, the entire school, and the community. Create awareness or sensitivity to cultural differences both in the school environment and in the community in general.
Student Government Association (by election)
Do you want to serve as a leader in our school? Do you have what it takes to help your classmates effectively express concerns to teachers and school administration? Would you like to make New Century International Middle School even better than it already is? Come and join the Student Government Association! Run for leadership positions and gain valuable knowledge and skills about how these amazing organizations are run. Meetings are held two to four times per month during the school year. NCIMS is currently a member of the NC Association of Student Councils.
The goals of our Titan Ambassadors Club are to increase incidents of kind acts and positive interactions within the school community and local Fayetteville community; to decrease incidents of unsafe behavior and bullying; to promote a positive and inviting school climate for ALL students; and to empower students to be accountable for themselves and others by demonstrating the Titan expectations.
*Other clubs may be added throughout the school year.
