Academic Team
Academic team competes in four areas (science, language arts, math, and social studies). There are five regular meets during the year and a Super Bowl at the end of the year. If you truly love one of the subjects listed, then you should try out for the team.

After School Activities Club
This club allows students to go to a variety of activities like a Reds game, a Bengals game, tubing at Perfect North Slopes, or a Cyclones hockey game. There are also "evening-ins" which are much like a giant indoor recess after school. 

Art Club
Art Club was developed to allow students a way to further explore different mediums and ideas within ach individual's' interests. This year, we will be gearing toward installations throughout the school. This type of artwork allows for all who enter SDMS to not only see what students are creating, but also to experience a more visual appealing atmosphere. Art Club is open to all 7th and 8th grade students. 

Math Club
The SDMS Math Club offers a a fun environment for students who enjoy mathematics. Members get together to play math games and make math crafts/projects. All abilities are welcome. 

National Junior Honor Society
The purpose of the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, to develop character, and to encourage good citizenship in the students. It is a national organization aimed at providing students with learning experiences especially in the area of community service. To be eligible for consideration, a student must have a grade point average of 3.5 or better throughout seventh-grade. In addition to scholarship, membership is based upon citizenship, leadership, service, and character. Students who meet the scholarship requirement will have an opportunity to complete a form detailing their accomplishments in and commitment to service, leadership, character, and citizenship. To become a member of NJHS, a student must be selected as a candidate by the SDMS faculty council and attend the induction ceremony in the spring. 

Robotics Team
Students on the SDMS Robotics Team will compete in VEX IQ Robotic Challenges. Team members will be building the robots based on specific criteria and constraints. Team members will be selected by the Robotic Team sponsors based on an interest inventory and entrance exam. 

S.A.D.D. (Students Against Destructive Decisions)
This is an organization that helps young students avoid the dangers of destructive decisions that can be made in today's society. We promote anti-bullying, anti-drugs, anti-drinking, anti-tobacco, abstinence, etc. The group empowers young students to avoid risky behaviors and pressures that could be a negative choice or a negative outcome. 

Squire Times Newspaper
The Squire Times student newspaper was started in 2017 and is a publication produced by student journalists of South Dearborn Middle School. The newspaper focuses on the events, issues, and opinions pertaining to the students, school, and South Dearborn community. Interviewing, writing, and brainstorming skills are honed as student staff members learn the elements of journalism. Students have the opportunity to apply each fall to become a member of The Squire Times. 

Student Council
Student Council consists of twenty members; there are ten members from each grade. These students are chosen by their peers after teachers fill out rating sheet. SC sponsors school dances, raises money for charities, runs the recycling program, helps with the Salvation Army ringing of the bells, and helps National Junior Honor Society with the canned food drive.

The Yearbook creates a time capsule of the school year's important events and activities that have occurred. Students who turn-in an application on time and are selected to be a part of the staff have the opportunity to design the entire book from cover to cover. Yearbook is open to all 7th and 8th graders who turn-in a completed application that will be available towards the end of August.
