CCMS offers the following clubs and activities:
Club/Activity Sponsor(s)
Speech Team - If you are interested in acting or performing in front of others, speech team is for you!  Speech team usually begins in September.  Students can decide to perform a solo script, a duet, improv duet (make it up on the spot), small group acting, poetry recitation, or impromptu speaking.  Practice is once a week until contest day which is usually one Saturday in November.  Students memorize the script and perform it in front of a judge.  This is a state contest, and students can get a I, II, or III place for speech state.  This is open to students in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade.

Musical - Every year CCMS produces a musical that is open to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. Auditions take place within the first few weeks of school, and the performances take place in November. If you enjoy singing, dancing, acting, or even enjoy being behind the scenes, the theatre may be for you. Mr. Micetich
Scholastic Bowl - The season starts in early-to-mid January and the regular season ends in April.  The state tournament ends in May.  Practices and meets are on Tuesdays and Thursdays with a conference meet usually on a Saturday in early April.  Through teacher recommendations, we send invite letters to fifteen 7th/8th grade students in early December.  The scholastic bowl team can work around the schedules for boys' basketball and track but not the schedules of volleyball and wrestling.  The team was undefeated last season.

Spelling Bee - Spelling Bee is open to all students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.  Spelling Bee usually begins in January with the first-round test.  The top ten scorers from each grade advance to round two.  These students get a new spelling list and will compete in round two.  From there, the top four students from each grade level go on to compete in the CCMS Spelling Bee.  The winner in each grade will go on to compete in the IVC Spelling Bee which is usually held in March or April.  The runner-up for each grade will serve as an alternate for the IVC Spelling Bee representative.
