Civic Oration is a club designed to develop a student’s speaking ability in front of an audience. Topics for speeches change from year to year but usually, focus on current affairs in some way. This is an opportunity for students to meet other students sharing an interest in public speaking, competition, speech writing, and to have some fun.  The competition is completed at the school level first with winning speeches moving on to the county level in early Spring.

The Techno-Hive robotics team is a gathering of students who are interested in learning about and working with robots. The robotics team meets on Wednesday’s after school. This year the FLL robotics tournament will be hosted by ACMS on November 16th, 2019. Students must design and build a robot that can compete against opponents from different schools in a series of specific challenges. Robotics helps address the growing demand for teaching science, technology, engineering, and math. Robotics students are designing, building, and programming robots.  As students learn what robots can and can’t do they also learn the need for precise instructions.
