Rachel Carson clubs begin

Students can join a wide variety of clubs that have started at Rachel Carson Middle School for the 2020-2021 school year — and even create new ones.

The clubs can be anything from social or athletic activities to academic groups including award-winning teams.  Some clubs like Math Counts and Debate have already reached the limits of how many people can join. Some clubs you can still join are Spanish club, Mario Kart club, and Disease Detectives. This year there are also many asynchronous clubs like chess club are clubs that don’t have specific meeting times and are joinable any time of the year.

Because everything is virtual this year, clubs can run any day of the week.  

To start a club, students need to check the club proposal form online. The RCMS website has all the info and if you need more you can email Adam Pawlowski
