Mrs. Cook, who leads the LHT, explained that the club is about representing the school’s functions throughout the school year, students in grades 3-8 can apply and would meet once a month. Please see her for applications!

  • Beta Club

The Beta Club is an invite-only club for students who display outstanding performance in all academic areas. The club sponsors, Mrs. Ward and Mrs. Magness have been hosting this club for many years. Their group wins awards each year and really has fun creating skits and art to perform in different competitions…even in Florida!

Mrs. Davis the Social studies 7th-grade teacher hosts 4 clubs. I reached out to her, and she explained to me what exactly her clubs are, and this was her response.

  • LCCA Theatre

Our theatre program at LCCA is for students interested in acting and the performing arts on a stage. I along with Mrs. Raley, Ms. Mansell, and Mrs. Rodrigue work with students in 3rd – 8th grade teaching them all the aspects of theatre life – acting, choreography/dancing, makeup, set building, costumes, and the technical aspects of theatre productions too. In the past LCCA Theatre has had productions of Lion King, and Annie, and performed at the Fall Fest, the Black History Program, and other things.

We are excited this year because our LCCA Theatre program is going to have two major productions, one in December and then one in May, in addition to several performances throughout the year. 

  •  National History Club

The National History Club Inc. (NHC) inspires students and teachers to start History Club chapters at high schools, middle schools, and within other student and community programs. Members of local History Club chapters participate in local and national programs and create their own projects and activities. The NHC also provides chapters with resources and services that will help them increase the activity and impact of their History Club. To date, 550+ History Club chapters at high schools and middle schools in 44 states have joined the NHC, and there are over 16,000 student members. 

 The LCCA National History Club is working on three major projects this year working with the Library of Congress’ special Veterans Program, Google Maps, and National Geographic. Students who are in National History Club are also in TEDEd Club which is a branch of TED Talks. Students in grades 5th – 8th interested in being part of the National History Club should see Ms. Davis.

  •  TEDEd Club

TED-Ed — TED’s youth and education initiative — aims to spark and celebrate the ideas and knowledge-sharing of teachers and students around the world. Everything TED-Ed does supports learning — whether it’s producing a growing video library of original animated lessons, providing an international platform for teachers to create their own interactive lesson plans, helping curious students around the globe bring TED to their schools and gain presentation literacy skills, or celebrating innovative leadership within TED-Ed’s global network of over 250,000 teachers. TED-Ed has grown from an idea worth spreading into an award-winning education platform that serves millions of teachers and students around the world.

The TED-Ed Clubs program supports students in discovering, researching, exploring and presenting their big ideas in the form of short, TED-style talks. We invite the most compelling speakers from TED-Ed Clubs to New York twice a year. Each club also receives TED-Ed’s flexible public speaking curriculum and opportunities to connect with a global network of passionate youth about ideas worth sharing. Students interested in being part of TEDEd LCCA should see Ms. Davis for more information.

  • Junior Rho Kapp

Junior Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society is the only national organization for middle or junior high school students that recognizes excellence in the field of Social Studies. Entrance into Junior Rho Kappa is by invitation only and is based on a student’s academic success in Social Studies. Students focus on community civic projects as well as school-wide projects focused on social studies and civic education. Students in Junior Rho Kappa will be holding voter registration drives for parents this year, and voter information booths, and will host community candidate debates when elections are close. In addition, students will work with the National History Club and TEDEd Club on new shows for TEDEd for this year and support the National History Club during some of their events.
