National Junior Beta Club

MCCS is proud to be in the second year of having a chapter of the National Junior Beta Club. The proud student members are invited to join if their semester average in the core subjects is 90% or higher. Beta Club is a leadership-service organization which rewards and reinforces scholarship, responsibility and effort. These fifteen scholars from fifth to eighth grades have chosen officers, had a formal induction ceremony and are scheduling service projects to benefit the school and community this year.

Student Council

Student Council at Mount Carmel is meant to be a "bridge" between the student body, teachers, office staff, and PTO. It is made up of 2-3 representatives from third through eighth grades with officers elected from our Middle School grades. Student Council is responsible for helping plan and promote several Lilburn Co-op Food Pantry drives, the Fun Run fundraiser, and a number of other family fun events and service projects for our community. The Student Council will meet approximately once a month after school.

Quiz Bowl

Middle School Quiz Bowl

At the middle school level, quiz bowl is a competitive, academic, interscholastic activity for which players attend periodic practices and then represent their school at tournaments. Those tournaments may be based on the school’s athletic conference, school district, county, or state; they may also be open to all comers.

 

Quiz bowl questions range over the entire spectrum of the middle school curriculum and also include a certain amount of current events, sports, and popular culture. The matches feature a blend of individual competition and team collaboration, since no individual player is likely to be an expert in all subject areas. Quiz bowl can reinforce classroom lessons and also encourage players to go beyond their assignments to master other areas as well.

 

The two major aspects to a school’s quiz bowl program are practicing and competing at tournaments.

 

Students practice throughout the year and compete during the second semester. Teams will usually practice weekly, but more dedicated teams choose to do so more frequently, particularly in weeks leading up to major tournaments. Most practices consist of intrasquad games, but some may also include alternate activities to emphasize particular subject areas. Schools have complete latitude to schedule and arrange their practices as they feel is appropriate.

 

Tournaments that use NAQT’s eligibility rules are open to all middle school students (grades 6–8), including those from public schools, private schools, religious schools, charter schools, magnet schools, and so on. Those tournaments are also open to home school collectives with students of an appropriate age.

 

Participating in Quiz Bowl:

  • Creates good work/study habits
  • Broadens individual horizons of factual information
  • Develops poise and confidence in students presenting themselves to the public
  • Develops teamwork and good citizenship qualities
  • Instills an appreciation for the pursuit of knowledge

Robotics

Robotics is open to students in the Pre -K through the sixth grades. (Pre-K and Kindergarten students must be able to sustain a 90-minute class) This course combines Math, Science, Engineering, and Technology.  Robotics offers students a way to learn which combines all of these curriculums and have fun doing it.  We will use “Lego for Education” building pieces to construct each robot. They will use the new NXT programmable bricks to run each robot. All equipment is provided for the building side of the class. This session we will again offer programing. To do this your child must bring their own laptop to class. I will provide the software and robot to program with. This will be self-paced and we will use the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education NXT Software to learn the programing. If students want to share a laptop I must have the parents ok in writing that they agree and name the students who can use the laptop. (Tablets will not work). Instructor – Germaine Schweibinz
