All clubs meet on days when late buses are available
(Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday)
Mr. Darryl Rodewald (drodewald@tivertonschools.org) is the late-bus supervisor.

GARDEN CLUB: The courtyard in the middle of the school is central to TMS' new Garden Club. At TMS, students learn about ecosystems. This allows our students to have a deeper understanding of concepts and apply their knowledge to real hands-on experiences. In regards to the garden, there are many benefits. The school garden can be: a source of food for improving children’s diets and nutrition sources; a source of healthy influences -- physical activity, ingredients for school meals; an area of learning -- about nature, agriculture, nutrition, math, and other subjects; a place of pleasure and recreation -- flowers and shrubs, play areas, shade, eating areas; a continuing lesson in respecting the environment and taking pride in one’s school; a gathering spot for our community to socialize. Join in the fun!

CHESS/CHECKERS LUNCH GROUP: Mrs. Margie Brennan runs this interactive alternative to the traditional lunch spent in the cafeteria. Students can challenge their peers to a game of chess or checkers during their assigned lunch time -- allowing for them to enjoy their afternoon meal and keep those neurons firing! Checkmate!

CYBERPATRIOT TEAM: TMS' CyberPatriot Team participates in the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly-hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services.

HOMEWORK CLUB: Homework Club runs every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday and is held in the TMS Library from 2:30pm to 3:30pm. TMS' Librarian, Ms. Deb O'Hara (Dohara@tivertonschools.org) is the club advisor.

MOCK TRIAL TEAM: We have several students signed up for the Mock Trial Team. TMS' Social Studies Coordinator, Mrs. Christine Costa, is the Team's advisor and Attorneys Jeffrey Sowa, Jennifer St. Laurent, and Brigid Mitchell are serving as legal advisors to the team. Please tell your sons and daughters who are aspiring lawyers -- or who just like to argue with you -- to see Mrs. Costa for details (ccosta@tivertonschools.org).

There are three regular season trials followed by the playoff rounds. Round one is in November, two is in December, and round three should be in January. The playoffs will begin in February and go to the end of April. The trials are always in RI court rooms around the state, many of them in Providence court rooms, and they are from 12:30pm (arrival time 12:15) to about 2:00pm.

NEWSPAPER CLUB: This club is an offshoot of both the Yearbook Club and TMS' Community Service Program. Mrs. Louann Pauls (lpauls@tivertonschools.org) is the advisor. Generally, the Newspaper Club runs on the same days as the Yearbook Club.

SCIENCE CLUB: The TMS Science Club focuses on animals/endangered species. Ms. Ruth Kilby (rkilby@tivertonschools.org) is the advisor and is gearing up for the year's activities. Stay tuned.

SPECIAL OLYMPICS: TMS' Unified Basketball program gets our school spirit soaring! Ms. Deidre Gauch (dgauch@tivertonschools.org) is the point person for UBB.

WORLD CULTURES CLUB: This club focuses on world languages and cultures and is run by TMS' World Languages teachers, Ms. Kim Howland (khowland@tivertonschools.org) and Ms. M. Natalia Vieira (mvieira@tivertonschools.org) -- meeting days/times TBD.

YEARBOOK CLUB: This popular club meets every Wednesday and Thursday, unless otherwise noted. Ms. Samantha Possemato (spossemato@tivertonschools.org) is the advisor.

Co-Educational Cross Country Team for Grades 6 - 8

Fox last stretch of race Click HERE for the latest pictures! 

Our Tiverton Middle School Cross Country Team is a long distance running team that competes against other Rhode Island Middle School teams throughout the state and area. Students practice an average of four days per week directly after school and are under the guidance of Coach Schreiner.  Students learn the skill set of pacing themselves and hydration while accomplishing 1.5 mile runs each day. Unlike running on a track, our cross country runners are challenged to run with the pitch of the land and stay on a specific path or trail. Meets are scheduled weekly.  For questions concerning our Co-Educational Cross Country Program, please contact Coach Schreiner at sschreiner@tivertonschools.org

Boys and Girls Basketball Team  for Grades 6 - 8

The boys and girls basketball season starts at the end of November.  Coach Brigham is the coach for the boys team and Coach Motta is the coach for the girls. The team practices four times a week directly after school.  Games are held after school at least one game per week during the regular season. Athletes play against other middle school teams throughout the Rhode Island area.  

All athletes who wish to participate in any of our sports are required to hand in a Tiverton Middle School Athletic packet as well as the State of Rhode Island School Physical Form.

If your child will participate on more than one team offered through the Tiverton Middle School Rhode Island Principals Council on Athletics (RIPCOA), they will only have to submit one packet per academic year.  For questions concerning either basketball team, please contact Coach Schreiner at sschreiner@tivertonschools.org
