Mile High Clubs
Online Newspaper Club
The Online Newspaper Club is a club designed to spread information about the great things happening at Mile High. We meet every Tuesday from 3:15- 4:15. This group of students are motivated to work, interested in Mile High events, and committed to putting together the best product we can! All group members are expected to do outside work. This may include taking photos, interviewing, or working on the computers.
We meet in room 202, where we plan and organize. After we talk, we go into the computer lab where we download photos, write captions, organize stories, and plan our paper (on line).
Maintenance Assistant Ed Nemeth is continuing a new and exciting club at PMHMS this year. Students will learn the fundamentals of woodworking to include safety and proper handling of hand and some power tools. Students will apply their knowledge by working on and completing a jewelry box. Due to the cost of materials, Woodworking Club will have a fee of $20, due at the onset of class. Intermediate level students will meet in Mr. McPherson’s tech room 439. Woodworking classes are offered in the fall and in the spring. More information regarding time and dates will be available during the second semester of school.

Checkmate In Three
The beginnings of chess are shrouded in mystery, but the game is over 1,000 years old. Today, chess has become a sport dominated by youth and teen clubs, in schools and after-school programs. Please join the Prescott Mile High Middle School chess club (Checkmate In Three) as we learn the fundamentals and then advance to higher level strategies. Whether you have never moved a pawn or have played since you were five, you are invited to learn a sport that is equal parts fun and thinking. Interested students should meet in Mr. Dermer’s room, 307 on Thursday’s at 3:15 p.m.
