2018-2019 Little Oak Middle Student Clubs

The Firecrackers
The Firecrackers received the "Making the Grade" award from the
Drew Brees Foundation in 2007.
Team Moderators: Mrs. Pope & Mrs. Segreti

Little Oak's Jump Rope Team, The Firecrackers, began over ten years ago and the team continues to be an integral part of our school. The Firecrackers meet on Tuesdays to practice basic jump roping skills and tricks. The jumpers work with each other to improve their athletic skills, foster relationships, and learn the importance of commitment and persistence. They perform throughout the Slidell Community at various events promoting fitness, teamwork, and spirit. Students that are interested in joining the team must complete an application and permission form, attend the workshop, and try out before a panel of judges. If selected, Firecrackers must maintain a C or better average in all subjects and are expected to maintain appropriate behavior at all times. Firecrackers are also expected to attend all practices. If a Jumper misses more than three practices, they are dismissed from the Jope Rope Team.

PBiS Ambassadors
(Positive Behavior Intervention and Support)

Club Sponsor-Ms. Warfield

PBiS is a prevention-oriented practice. School personnel use evidence-based practices, improve implementation of those practices, and maximize academic and social behavior outcomes. PBiS supports the success of ALL students.

To best serve the needs of our students, each homeroom teacher selects one to two students to represent their class. These selected students are called PBiS Ambassadors. When we receive new students, PBiS Ambassadors greet the student(s) at the front office and take them on a campus tour. They also provide support until the student has adjusted to his or her new school. Ambassadors meet monthly to discuss student concerns, new ideas, and best practices.

This year is the very first year for the Little Oak Middle School Year Book Staff! We are very excited to have this amazing experience for a group of 17 fifth and sixth graders this year.
