Social Studies Clubs

For meeting times and locations, visit the clubs and organziations page.

The Political Activists' Club:

The Political Activists' Club is for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who want to become more informed about political parties and current events. Members will research and discuss topics that are important to them in a non-judgmental setting. The club will also provide opportunities to get involved in community service. Members will learn how to appropriately take action on an issue important to them by getting more informed about and contacting their local, state, and national government representatives. All who are interested in discussing and getting more involved in current events, politics, and community service are welcome!

Mock Trial Debate Team

As part of the Mock Trial / Debate Team, you get the chance to play the role of a lawyer or witness in a fictional court case. You’ll compete against other team members and maybe even go against another school on Long Island. A mock trial is based on a fictional court case that deals with real issues in today’s justice system. We will have two tournaments. One will be at C.M.S. in the evening in February or early March for your parents to attend. The other will be against other schools on Long Island in March or early April during the school day. More details will be announced on both tournaments as the dates get closer.

History Club

This club offers an opportunity for students with an interest in history to develop and enhance research and document analysis skills, and share an interest in history and politics with classmates and new friends. We will be working in conjunction with Commack Public Library on genealogies, in order to understand the importance of historical records, and utilize local historical societies’ archives to enhance Social Studies projects in order to compete on a local and regional level in the National History Day competition. In addition the History Club looks to develop a wide variety of opportunities for field trips where we may enjoy the wealth of history that long Island has to offer.

Geography Club

The Geography Club is open to all students in 6th, 7th, and 8 th grade who have an interest in geography and competing in the geography bee. Did you know that Egypt is the world’s second largest consumer of cotton candy? (The United States is first.) Have you ever wondered why there is a Starbucks on almost every corner in New York City? Come to a meeting and you will find out all sorts of cool and fun facts about geography. We will learn about all different types of geography like population, human, and urban geography. Students will be encouraged to participate in the geography bee with the hopes of advancing to the state level. This club will also benefit students who are looking to take AP Human Geography when they reach the high school level.
