Arts & Craft Club

Arts & Crafts Club is open to all students and will meet on Tuesdays at 3:00. We will learn 2 new crafts a month using common household items. If students do not have some of the "specialty items," such as paint brushes, these can be borrowed from the club to complete the activity. Material lists will be provided prior to activities so students will know what they'll need to complete each activity. Sign up is required.

 

Audiobook Club

Audiobooks are skyrocketing in popularity as a new way to enjoy books we love. Join Audiobook Club today to listen to a new audiobook each month. We will meet on Zoom twice a month to discuss - don't forget to bring a snack!

 

Drama Club

Drama Club is open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who audition to be part of the school musical that will be performed at Plainfield North High School.  Practices start in October and run through January. Click here for further information.

 

Multi-Cultural Club

Do you enjoy learning about different people? Do you value differences and celebrate commonalities? Then this is the club for you! The Multicultural Club will explore a variety of cultures in many ways. Our club meets on Wednesdays from 3 to 4 p.m.

 

National Junior Honor Society

Membership in National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a student. Our chapter strives to give practical meaning to the Society's standards of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character. The NJHS strives to recognize the total student, one who excels in all of these areas.

Students inducted into the Ira Jones Chapter of NJHS will be expected to:

  • Maintain a GPA of at least 4.85 (on a 5 point scale)
  • Be an active participant in NJHS - attend meetings and volunteer at school community events
  • Complete individual community service
  • Demonstrate leadership, good citizenship and character at Ira Jones and in the community

Student Council

The Ira Jones Student Council is an after school club that allows students to share ideas, interests, and concerns with teachers and school principals. The purpose of Student Council is to build unity among the students, provide leadership opportunities for students, and plan events and activities that promote PRIDE. Student Council also helps raise funds for school-wide activities, including social events, community projects, helping people in need, and school reform.

 

WE Act Club

WE Act Club is open to any student in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade. Our club's activities are driven by our members, and our goal is to do good things for our school, local, and global community. Some of the ways in which we serve our community are through raising money for charitable organizations, collecting food and clothing items for various causes, running a blood drive for the American Red Cross, and building up our members as philanthropists. Students may join this club at any point throughout the year, the more the merrier!

For the 2020/2021 school year, this club will meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.

 

Yearbook

The main focus of the yearbook group is to assist in the creation of a school yearbook that represents the diverse student population of Ira Jones Middle School. Students in the yearbook group learn about basic photography, writing skills, design layout, computer software programs, and working successfully together as a production team. The yearbook group will meet on Tuesdays throughout the year as deadlines dictate.
