Student activities at Blue Mountain Middle School provide opportunities for students to engage in special interests in addition to curricular experiences.
Students participating in extracurricular activities are required to adhere to the rules and regulations established for each group or organization. Such rules are in addition to the general school district rules and should be published and reviewed with the students and, when appropriate, their parents. Suspension from an extracurricular activity for violation of rules or regulations established for the organization or activity is the prerogative of the adviser or coach. Expulsion from an activity may occur only after due process procedures have been followed.
Students have the opportunity to participate in producing two student publications. One, the Eaglet, a newspaper published every month and contains interviews, student items, and activities about Blue Mountain Middle School. The “Memory Book”, another publication, is issued at the end of the school year. This book contains the pictures of all the students and action pictures of the middle school activities.
A student council is organized to stimulate cooperation between the students and faculty, to promote school spirit by more participation in school activities, and to help to develop better citizens for the future.
