Extracurricular clubs and activities are an important part of the life of the middle-school child. Membership in different clubs and organizations gives students the opportunity to develop skills in social interaction, to be creative, and to assume positions of responsibility. Long County Middle School provides a variety of activities in which students may involve themselves. All students at Long County Middle School are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities.
Band is an exciting way to learn about music and is offered to 6-8th grade students. They meet daily during their exploratory class during the school day. We will have a couple of concerts on campus throughout the school year. Prior experience on a band instrument is not required but students will be responsible for obtaining an instrument and books for the class through local music dealers. Only those students who have the drive and discipline to work hard and to improve their musicianship should enter the program. Click here for more informtion.
