Programs, Sports and Activities
Students in 7th and 8th grades may participate in a number of sports. Students must try-out for the team, and not all students are selected to the team. All of our teams are competitive and the best eligible players play at the discretion of our coaches.
At Blue Ridge Middle, we offer volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball, and soccer. Some high school sports teams allow 7th and 8th grade students to participate. Contact the high school for more information.
We offer three different opportunities for students to learn, grow, and develop their musical skills. Chorus, Strings, and Band each have a number of school performances as well as extra-curricular performance options.
Students in our art classes are given the opportunity to participate in several county-wide competitions and contests. Mr. Peggram is the art instructor teaching art and design to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.
Battle of the Brains
Our Academic Team has a tradition of being not only one of the best teams in the district, but also performing very well in national competitions in Chicago and in Washington DC. The Academic Team (Battle of the Brains) is lead by Mrs. Johnson.
Students who meet specific academic performance requirements by the end of their 7th grade year become eligible to join our chapter of the National Junior Beta Club. Our students not only perform at the top of their class academically, but also participate in a number of volunteer opportunities.
