STRIVE Homework Club

At Bemis Junior High School, we are interested in taking positive steps to help your child have a successful school year. We will be offering students the opportunity to attend STRIVE Homework Club which will be available on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:05pm to 4:00pm in the Bemis Media Center. This service is free of charge to Bemis students. Students can use this time to get academic assistance, complete assignments, work on projects, and/or study for tests. 

Each child in attendance should bring all necessary materials and books to the media center by 3:05pm. Please be advised that if a student comes to Homework Club with nothing to work on, he/she will not be admitted to Homework Club that day. All students will be expected to remain in the Media Center until 4:00pm. Students will need to sign in each day that they participate. Students are to arrange for their own transportation home.

Student Council

Student Council is a service organization comprised of students from 7th & 8th grades. Their goal is to represent the student body and our neighboring communities in many ways.
Council members meet at least once a month after school to organize and sponsor a variety of student activities such as dances, spirit weeks, random acts of kindness, fundraisers, and other special events. Funds raised by the Student Council benefit the school, students or charitable organizations.
If you have great leadership skills, use them to be a student council representative or student council officer. Get involved in your school!
**See the Bemis Bulletin for meeting information**

Science Olympiad

The Science Olympiad Team increases a student’s awareness of science. It’s fun, competitive, and rewarding. Students who love science and challenges should join.

Students work in a team to compete in challenges that include lab events, tests and building events. Some events follow the format of popular board games, TV shows, and athletic games. These events are balanced with various science disciplines like biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, as well as computers and technology. Students compete each year with other students from Macomb County in competitions that include: bottle rocketry, identifying mystery powders, meteorology, and bridge building.

Social Studies Olympiad involves many events in which 7th & 8th  grade students compete individually or in teams.

Each year there is a different social studies topic such as regional or world geography, transportations, etc. Students use posters, poetry, quiz bowl competitions, essays, etc. to illustrate the topic.
