New clubs offer range of experiences for students at AcadeMir schools

AcadeMir Charter School Middle and AcadeMir Preparatory Academy offer many clubs throughout the week, giving students the opportunity to learn about their interests outside of the classroom.

Both a volleyball club and basketball club will start with Coach Andrews after the break. Ms. Crespo and Ms. Perez oversees two clubs: Science, Engineering, Communication, Mathematics, and Enrichment (SECME) and Dream in Green. Ms. Masis, who teaches a class in robotics, oversees a robotics club with Ms. Rodriguez. Finally, the newspaper is produced by a student club organized by Mr. Bunch.

The clubs offer many things to do like helping the environment to doing projects. In the Dream in Green club, you can help the environment and create environmental inventions that can help the school. In SECME club, students make inventions and compete with other schools in Florida and the nation. If a student succeeds in Ms. Masis’ robotics class, the skills learned there could have them competing in regional competitions.

“Clubs are great, because they keep students engaged in learning beyond normal school hours,” Mr. Bunch said. “Some of my best school memories come from after-school activities I participated in. I’m happy we can help provide that for other students.”
