Additional Activities

Our students have a wide array of interests!  Isaac Newton offers many acitivities to enrich your child's spiritual, academic, physical and social life.

Student Council

Junior high students from each grade are elected by their classmates twice each year to represent them on the student council.  The council meets every Wednesday.  In the fall, they plan and organize "See You at the Pole", a junior high Bible retreat, school spirit activities, and the Thanksgiving formal.  They also organize a Christmas bake sale to fund "Heifer International".  In the spring, they plan another Bible retreat (or two, depending on the year), offer more spirit day events and opportunities, put together a fundraiser for Compassion International or another organization, plan and organize an academic bowl for the middle school, and plan and organize the middle school "field day" events in May.  

Yearbook

We take great pride in our yearbook and have many dedicated junior high students who work hard to provide this special book that highlights each school year.  Students who work on the Yearbook have a specific study hall set aside each week to meet.  We use an internet-based design system that provides great experience for students.  Students are involved in all aspects of the yearbook from picture taking to layout and design.  Students get the satisfaction of seeing a project cycle from conception all the way through final printing and distribution.  The Yearbook faculty advisor is our Technology Facilitator, Mrs. Kristi Nanke.

Junior Leadership Program

Junior high students entering the 7th grade may apply to be part of our Junior Leadership Program, which takes two years to complete. Applicants accepted into the program undergo rigorous training in all aspects of leadership, and apply that training in many practical ways throughout the community. The students learn foundational communications skills, as well as how to completely publicize, organize and carry out service projects. They also spend time with young adult mentors, go on field trips, and engage in team building activities. Ask for our Junior Leadership Program brochure for details.

ACSI Competitions

Isaac Newton students participate in several ACSI competitions including the Spelling Bee, Speech Meet and Math Olympics.
