IDMS is proud to announce the following clubs for the 2017-18 school year: 

Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books is a team designed to encourage reading by students at the middle school level. The goal of this team is to encourage the love and enjoyment of reading. As a result, the student’s choice in reading materials matures and their knowledge and vocabulary broaden.

An ALL STAR team of 6-12 students earns the right to compete against all middle schools in the county on their knowledge of 29 books. To win that right, each student is given a number of books they are responsible for reading and becoming an expert on. Preparing for the competition is done in question writing sessions, mock competitions, and other gaming style learning. Above all, fun and a love of reading are what is encouraged by being a part of this team.

Civic Oration
Civic Oration is a club designed to develop a student’s speaking ability in front of an audience. Sponsored by the Modern Woodmen of the World, the club begins meeting before the second semester for students to write their speeches. Topics for speeches change from year to year but usually, focus on current affairs in some way. Competition is on several levels: school, district, and system. This is an opportunity for students to meet other students sharing an interest in public speaking, competition, speech writing, and to have some fun. Come join us!

The forensics team will recite scripted dialogue where there is little to no movement requiring an extensive range of emotions. There are several categories varying from storytelling to exempt speech. Our forensics team will be entered in several competitions for our age group, with other schools throughout Cumberland County. For sixth graders, this can be the start of an acting career.

Get Fit Be Strong
An after-school program open to any 6th grader who is wanting to improve their fitness level, wishing to prepare for tryouts or wants more physical activity time.

Moving to a new place and adjusting to a new school, new teachers and finding new friends are daunting and scary experiences for most school-age kids, especially if the child faces the experience more than once.  Believing that transitioning does not have to be difficult, “just different,” JS2S or Junior Student 2 Student is a unique student-led, school managed program that confronts the challenges of transition and provides relevant training giving students the best possible transition experience. JS2S is a powerful program designed to help change a transitioning student’s focal point from what the student has lost to what the student will gain through the relocation.    JS2S guides students through their uncertain surroundings, offering – from a peer viewpoint – valued information, friendships, and assistance in the three areas that matter most to transitioning students, finding their way, relationships, and academics.

Jr. Beta Club
The Junior Beta Club’s philosophy is “Let us lead by serving others,” and that is exactly what we do in Junior Beta Club. Although our grades are very important to us, and we are always striving to do our best, we look for projects that we can do that serve others. Examples of projects that we have done in the past are fundraisers for St. Jude’s Hospital, Pennies for Pasta and our annual food drive for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have participated in many projects in downtown Fayetteville, as well. We have sponsored events to honor A and AB Honor Roll students and their parents. Fifth graders who were in Beta Club during fifth grade will automatically be in Beta Club in sixth grade, while anyone else can join as long as they maintain a ninety overall average. Contact:
