After School Clubs

After School Clubs
We want you to be involved at DCMS. It is your involvement that makes our school great!  Below is a list of extracurricular clubs offered at DCMS for you to consider.

Academic Team: Do you have an abundance of knowledge on a variety of subjects? Join the DCMS academic team! We hold tryouts in September and 14 students make up our two teams. We practice once a week in the library. We participate in at least three tournaments per year, competing against students from many surrounding schools. Direct questions to Mrs. Denney in the media center.
eSports Gaming Club: eSports League offers seasonal, nationwide gaming tournaments where students can play with friends, develop fundamental skills like teamwork & leadership, and learn about all the career paths available in eSports! All games will be played via Nintendo Switches. Games include the following: Rocket League, Knockout City, Minecraft: Survival Games, Pokémon Unite, and 10 Minute Chess. Talk to Mr. Verble for more information. 
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA): FCA meets every Thursday morning at 7:15 am before school in Coach Chandler’s room A211. We discuss Bible studies and share in the vision of FCA, which is to see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of athletes and coaches. FCA is open to all students and involvement in athletics is not required to attend. The first meeting will take place on the first Thursday in September. Direct questions to Coach Chandler, Coach Pense, or Ms. Pembrook.
Service club: This club provides students an opportunity to spread joy/kindness and serve the school and community once a month through service projects after school. We invite everyone to join regardless of grade level or academics. We aim to Be the Light!! Reach out to Mrs. Hall, Mrs. Wilson, Mrs. Kerr, or Mrs. Soter from the Avenger team for questions. 
Horticulture Club: In the Horticulture Club, we explore the art and practice of garden cultivation and management. Students will have the opportunity to grow their own plants through organic methods, propagation, and hydroponics.  Help us beautify our campus by growing flowers and herbs for pollinators, and building community gardens. Learn techniques from gardeners around the country.  No experience is needed. Direct your questions to Mrs. Nelson, Room C4.
National Junior Honor Society (NJHS): The DCMS chapter of NJHS focuses on five principles:  scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.8 and have been a student in Deer Creek for at least a year can apply to become a member at the beginning of each school year. Members participate in service projects as well as volunteer in the community on their own time. Direct questions to Mrs. Barton or Mrs. Jones. (‘21-’22 - 8th graders only)
Speak & Compete Club:
The DCMS Speak and Compete Club gives you the opportunity to express your opinions, sharpen your critical-thinking skills, research interesting topics, advocate for causes and issues you are passionate about, and improve your public speaking while competing in OSSAA sanctioned novice speech and debate events in the area. Meetings will be held every other Tuesday after school in the drama room. Direct questions to Mrs. Morales or Mrs. Sughrue, or text @speakdcms to 81010 to sign up for the Remind. Make your voice heard!
STEAM/TSA Club: STEAM Club is for students that like to be involved in a makerspace using science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics to create! TSA Club is for current Gateway students to be involved in a leadership student organization sponsored by Francis Tuttle Technology Center. Both clubs meet after school on Mondays until 4 PM. See Mrs. Carnes for more information.
Youth & Government: DCMS students have the opportunity to participate in YAG’s Model Legislative Day. Student’s write a bill about something they would like to change within the State of Oklahoma and then represent their bill and debate other student bills while serving as a Junior Senator or Junior Representative for the day! This program expands and continues at the high school level with many more opportunities. The mission of YAG is helping students find THEIR voice. Direct questions to Mr. Cory.
Zombie Survival Club:
  CALLING ALL AGENTS!! An increasing number of citizens are disappearing, especially at night. These victims are reappearing as perpetrators and are slow-moving, yet very strong. They are impervious to pain/injury. They are constantly hungry and attacking at an alarming rate.  We’re currently trying to figure out how to stop them. DCMS agents will explore what it takes to survive the zombie apocalypse. Agents will participate in activities that explore hazard preparedness, CPR, First Aid, disease outbreak, and much more! Come and explore what it will take to survive the zombie apocalypse! Direct questions to Mrs. Wade or Mrs. Bailey.
