Clubs and Organizations
Junior high is a wonderful time for students. In order for students to have the best experience at Harwood, we strongly encourage all students to join at least one club, organization or team. It is important for students to be involved in a positive activity outside the regular school day. Below is a current list of the club offerings at Harwood.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes – Cleveland and Trejo FCA's mission is "to lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church." Its vision is "to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.” Meetings are every Tuesday in rooms H111 with Coach Carter and C108 with Coach Trejo from 7:55 a.m—8:15 a.m.
World Affairs Council – Boltz and Kepler Students are transformed from observers into informed international participants by gaining global competence skills through educational programs focused on diplomatic leadership, civic engagement, problem solving and cultural intelligence. Meetings are held every other Tuesday starting October 1st in A109.
MakerSpace Club – Baggs In the library at 7:45 a.m. on the days when Mrs. Baggs is on campus, MakerSpace is a fun environment where kids can build, create and explore. Look for the sign in the courtyard or check in the library to see if MakerSpace is happening and join us!
National Junior Honor Society – Cooley and Hackworth We induct new members (8th and 9th graders) every spring. Students must have a 90 overall average in their core classes as well as be recommended by their teachers. We do service projects for the school and community throughout the school year. Meetings are on the first Thursday of every month at 8:00 a.m. in the library.
Student Council – Hackworth and Machristie Student Council is open to students in all grades. Students can join any time during the school year by coming to get a permission slip and having their parents sign it. Student Council is involved in hosting two dances a year, charity work, leadership skills and leadership conferences, fundraising, school spirit initiatives and helping with other campus needs. Meetings are the last Wednesday of every month in C102 before school at 8:00 a.m. and after school at 3:40 p.m.
Tennis Club – Tennis is for 7th or 8th grade Harwood students who would like to compete against the other district junior high schools in tennis. Participants don’t need previous experience or any equipment but do need a current physical. The season starts in December and ends in March. We hold 2-3 one-hour practices a week after school. Listen for announcements in November for more information about meetings/practices.
