Even though learning in the academic areas is the primary purpose of any school program, extra-curricular activities are also an extremely valuable area where students share accomplishments and learning experiences beyond those which occur in the classroom. A wide variety of activities are available and we strongly encourage all of our students to become involved in one or more of them.

Intramurals is a club that is open to ALL grade levels. We play recreational sports throughout the year, which also include tournaments. We meet twice a week; Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 7am.
Students coming for Intramurals should be dropped off at the front door. Please bring gym shoes to participate. Students will be allowed to use the locker room if they wish to change.
Students are welcome to come on either day; attendance is not taken. This is a chance to have fun while playing sports!! Come on out!
Our start date this year will be August 28th.
NOTE: All students participating in Intramurals must have a "Concussion Form" on file before they may participate.

National Junior Honor Society
The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is an elite group of students in eighth grade who demonstrate outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, service, and citizenship. Each year, members are selected by HGMS faculty based on these criteria. Seventh grade students will be given the opportunity to apply for NJHS towards the end of the current school year.
Meetings: Calendar is pending.
Awards: During 2016 we ran 4 robotics teams which competed at the Oswego East H.S. Qualifying Tournament in Aurora, Illinois or at the Rotolo Middle School Qualifier in Batavia. This was our 4th season, and we did very well. One of our teams received the "Judges' Award," and almost made it into the state competition.
Sponsors: Mrs. Hughes and Ms. Larson
Student Council at Heritage Grove is an opportunity for students to work as a governing body for the school. The Executive Council is elected from all seventh and eighth grade students who care to run. We have a president, vice president and secretary. The members of the Council work on committees to set the themes for our school dances. The members of the committee also help set up for the dances.
Student council runs fund raising sales during the year to earn money for local causes like homelessness and Creekside Cares. We also have had food and clothing drives and candy sales to help the needy. We plan and run the two spirit weeks and assemblies during the year. The Council is open to all students and each home room is encouraged to send one representative to each of the meetings.

Yearbook Club is open to students in grades 6, 7 and 8. They will plan and create the Heritage Grove Yearbook! This club meets all year long. Meeting dates and times are in the process of being formalized. In addition to regular meeting times, some students will be asked to meet after school in small groups to take pictures of school activities and work on specific pages on which they were assigned. Dates and times of these events will vary depending on the activity.
