Clubs at MS 839 let students explore new interests or further develop a hobby, and develop socially outside the classroom. Depending on the club, they may meet during lunch or after school. This year, we have over a dozen clubs for students to choose from: French Club, Student Council, Multicultural Club, Queer Book Club, Yearbook, Peer Mediation, Just Words Reading Club, Soccer Team, Basketball Team, Volleyball Team, Poetry Club, Running Club, Spring Musical, and NeST (our student tech team).
Elective options, a mix of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, meet twice a week and are great opportunities for students, and the faculty that teach them, to go deeper into subjects that interest them. Elective options have included photography, animal behavior field study, math team, guitar, Stitch Fix/sewing, and film making.
We have a Soccer Team, Basketball Team, Volleyball Team, and a Running Club. Our teams scrimmage with other schools, and there are weekend tournaments.
Breakfast is available for all students starting at 8AM until 8:40 AM. All students are eligible for free breakfast and/or lunch.
