On Nov 21st, the entire Idabel Middle School participated in fun day, celebrating the Great American Smokeout. The Smokeout is a day set aside for all smokers to not smoke and consider quitting smoking permanently. The students played games and learned about the dangers of smoking and the effects on long-term health. The event was hosted by the ByPass Church of Chist and was sponsored by the health department, several local volunteers, Idabel Middle School, members of the Idabel High School National Honor Society and the Warrior Academy. Later in the day, students viewed numerous tobacco prevention presentations, commercials, public service announcements, and music videos.
Idabel Middle School is proud to introduce the 2013-2014 Quiz Bowl Team. Team members are: Yesenia Gil, Reann Wall, Trae’ Richards, Shelby Lang, Karigan Clay, Alex Gil, Oscar Gil, Lilly Anna Van Gaul, Leah Herrod, Slade Coleman and Michael Harper. Quiz Bowl is a competitive and academic activity for which players attend periodic practices and then represent their school at tournaments. 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. Students who are interested in trying out for the Quiz Bowl Team take a written exam as well as a test for speed; the students with the highest scores are invited to be on the team.
National Junior Honor Society News
Laura Bullock, principal of Idabel Middle School welcomed parents, teachers, and family of new inductees of the National Junior Honor Society. New members are selected from the 7th grade based on their GPA of 3.5 or better. The GPA is established from the previous 2 consecutive semesters. A list is comprised from qualified candidates, and that list is sent to faculty members for review and recommendations. Recommendations are made based on whether the candidates demonstrate the five cardinal principles of the NJHS: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character, and Citizenship. Members will also be required to fulfill three hours per month of community service. This year 18 new members were selected from the 7th grade as inductees.
Candles representing each of the cardinal principles were lit by the 8th grade officers. New inductees were asked to recite the NJHS pledge. At that time they were congratulated on their new role as members of the Idabel Middle School Chapter. The new inductees are as follows:
