Your participation in the different activities is encouraged. You will find that it is a great time to be with your friends, and it's lots of fun! However, our school policy requires that a student's work be up to date in order to participate in these activities. Failure to do so means that you may not be allowed to participate (practice or play) in these activities until your work is satisfactorily complete.
The student activities are held after school on the days that there is a late bus so that everyone has the chance to get involved.
The Student Council plays a very active part of our school life and it is an opportunity to take on a leadership role in school. The Student Council sponsors dances, school activities, and community service. In the fall elections are held for president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer of the Council.

John Glenn Middle School strives to offer all students the opportunity to participate in the athletic program. We believe the combination of both interscholastic and intramural sports programs at this age level is appropriate and provides opportunities for all students.
The role of athletics at the middle school level is to help students learn new skills; understand how to function in a team environment; understand the role of a team and one's responsibility to the team; appreciate healthy competition; be physically active; learn discipline and self care.
