Did you go to the One Snowy Night dance? If you did, you may have seen some carnival games set up at the dance. These games were provided by Stacey’s Builders Club. There were two games available for you to play.

One of the games was called “Three Snowy-Hoops”, in which players had three wreaths. The Builders Club members and board members instructed the players to throw the wreaths like frisbees. There were cones as well, and every time a wreath was rung around a cone, the player earned one raffle ticket. They also won a pencil and eraser.

The second game was called “Icicle Toss”. This was a tossing game (as the title implies). Players had three hula hoops. If they made one or less around the “icicle” they would get nothing. If they made two, they would get an eraser. Last, if they made all three, players would have gotten a pencil and maybe an eraser as long as the club wasn’t running out. They would have also gotten a raffle ticket, so long as they landed at least one hula hoop. More…

Cougars for What? Cougars for Christ! 13

Throughout the years here at Stacey Middle School, there have only been clubs that are for gaming, service hours, dance, etc. But as the years go on, one particular Stacey Middle School student realized that Stacey needed Jesus. She then created a Christian club for students to gather and share their common beliefs.

What even is CFC?

CFC or Cougars for Christ is a new Christian club at Stacey Middle School.

When asked what the club is, Mia Grasse, 7th-grade founder, said, “CFC is a club where even if you’re not Christian you can just come in and, uh, figure out what we’re all about. It’s for the most part pretty religious, we talk about a lot of stories from the bible. But it’s a lot of fun.” 

During the club, they participate in many Bible trivia games and prayer. More…

What even is Builders Club?

Builders Club is a new club here at Stacey, and it is a student-led service organization. Ms. Walters decided to advise Builders Club because it is similar to clubs you may participate in later on in High School such as Kiwins, and Key Club. These can be joined by students that attend Marina High School. If attending another high school, check the online website of that school for the clubs that they have listed and provided, depending on the high school or college you are attending. More…

Is it time for Club Rush already?

Clubs are a very important aspect of a student’s middle school career. After middle school, they may not remember what Language Arts class they were in or their Math teacher’s name, but they will most likely remember all of the fun times they had and all of the great friends they made while being apart of a club.

Maybe a dance club or a program for a student’s specific needs and interests may quench their thirst for a great year. Well, Club Rush is the perfect event to find out what you can do as a Stacey cougar.

Club Rush will be happening during lunchtime on Wednesday, October 4th. The student leadership will be advertising all the clubs that they’re trying to get up and running. Students can see a list of the clubs on the Stacey website. More…
