Community Service

Clipper CrewIs an eighth-grade leadership program which started in 2007 as a way of promoting service, leadership, and school spirit. Participating students must be recommended by their 7th grade teachers, participate in an interview with the two faculty advisors.  Students should demonstrate the potential to take advantage of the opportunity to develop and use their leadership skills to the benefit of the Nock Middle School community at-large. The group meets regularly, both in and outside of school, typically after school two Wednesdays a month in room 217 and occasionally during lunch (depending upon the activity).
