From Boys to Men

The Real Man’s Club is for boys between the age of 12 and 14 years of age. The intent is to teach leadership, community responsibility and encourage academic achievement, therefore establishing a “Rite of Passage”.

The club will meet once a week for one hour and a half.

Boys will be required to meet 7 tasks. These are the Seven Principles of Nguzo Saba: Umoja-Unity, Kujichagulia-self-determination, Ujima-Collective Work, Ujama-Cooperative Economics, Nia-Purpose, Kuumba-Creativity and Imani-Faith.

Boys are required to be a current student at Oak Hammock Middle School.

Umoja (Unity)-organize a meeting of two opposing groups or ideas and create a study group to discuss the opposing issuer.

Kujichagulia (Self-determination)-raise grade one grade level per first semester in 4 out of 8 classes (50%).

Ujima (Collective Work) - design community service project, paint house for the elderly, clean street for earth day, collect shoe for developing country or visit elderly home.

 Ujama (Cooperative) Economics-organize a fundraising project, to support club projects.

Nia (Purpose) - demonstrate that you have accomplished some none academic goal or plan an activity to support cultural awareness (sports, after school activity, community or church).

Kuumba - (Creativity) - Complete Science fair or social studies project.

Imani (Faith) - complete research of history of a religious organization or visit a church of a different faith.

At the end of the year, 8th grade boys who have completed all tasks will go through a ceremony crossing over into manhood.  See Mr. Kimble for more information.

Student Council

OHMS Student council is an action-based club representing the student body of our school.  Student council sponsors our Back-To-School and Valentines Day dances.  The club runs several community service programs throughout the year as well as opening the Student Council Christmas store in December.  Student Council is made up of Officer positions as well as grade level representatives.  Officers are elected by the student body and anyone who is interested in participating in this club may do so as a grade level representative.  See Ms. Thigpen if you're interested.

Book Battle

Book Battle Club meets every Thursday after school. Students read and listen to the 15 books on the Sunshine State Young Readers Middle Grades List. Book Battle meets every Thursday afterschool with Ms. Marshall.
