After School Clubs and Activities for 2021-2022

Below is general information for each club/activity

Fees may apply. Checks can be made out to HWRSD - no cash for fees.
Information will be available from advisor. Meeting dates are subject to change or cancellation.

Art Club - Mrs. Concannon - s.concannon@hwschools.net
Room 215 - Art Club calendar
Fee - $25

The art club allows students the opportunity to create artwork beyond the regular art curriculum. Because of the club setting, student work can be more personal and individualized than work done in art class. The club also provides an outlet for students who want to create art throughout the school year. The setting will be informal and students do not need to attend every meeting date in order to join. 

Chorale - Mrs. Simko - k.simko@hwschools.net
Room 227 
Fee - $60

Chorale is a select vocal ensemble that performs at the Winter and Spring Concerts, Choralfest, and any other venues deemed educationally worthy by the Director during the school year.  Students do not need to be in Chorus to be in Chorale, but participation in Chorus or Band is strongly encouraged.  Literature will consist of music pulled from across the spectrum of choral literature with an emphasis on advanced a cappella repertoire.

Jazz Combo - Mr. Fecke - e.fecke@hwschools.net

Jazz Combo is open to all members of the MRMS band program via audition. Jazz Combo performs at the Arts Night, teacher appreciation luncheons and many other venues. Our music is pulled from across the spectrum of jazz with an emphasis on swing and improvisation.

Jazz Band - Mr. Fecke - e.fecke@hwschools.net

The sounds of swing are alive and well at Miles River Middle School. Every Friday afternoon from 2:30 to 3:30, you can hear the sound of musicians improvising solos over twelve bar blues. Jazz is a uniquely American art form. Jazz is one of the best ways to express yourself musically.  Although the music has rules, the ideas are the individual’s. Therefore, it is very satisfying to play, as well as fun!  

Rehearsals are every Friday from 2:30 to 3:30 in the Jan DeSantis Performing Arts Room.  Click here for rehearsal dates.

Math Team - TBD

The math team is composed of students from 6-8 grade. It is open to all interested students. Throughout the school year, the team competes in five math meets with other middle schools from the North Shore. For four of the meets, the team travels to a host school. Students return to Miles River Middle School by 6 pm. Between meets, the team gathers to practice math problems to prepare for the next meet.

Guitar and Ukelele Club - Ms. Linkin - w.linkin@hwschools.net
Room 201 
Fee - $20

Do you play guitar, ukulele or another string instrument? If you'd like to have fun playing your instrument with other students after school, come join the MRMS Guitar-Ukulele Club! If you are a beginner or have experience, all students are welcome to join. There are 25 classroom guitars and 25 classroom ukuleles for students to use. Please contact Ms. Linkin with any questions.

One Act Playwriting Workshop - Ms. deLima - c.delima@hwschools.net

We also coordinate spirit weeks and grade level parties and activities such as movie nights and the 6th grade Halloween party. Students must submit a complete application by 9/27/21 to be considered for the Fall ballot. Grade 8 students who are elected to the general council can run for an officer position on Election Day in November.

Cooking Club - Ms. Adsit k.adsit@hwschools.net

Cooking classes will be offered throughout the year after school through a generous donation from the Hamilton-Wenham Cultural Council. Students will learn how to make delicious treats such as crinkle cookies, calzones, pizza and scones with more to come! Classes will be posted on the Cooking Club website and students should sign-up with Ms. Adsit. Classes are free thanks to the donation.

Classes are from 2:30-3:30 so that the students can take the late bus home.
