Want to learn to play an instrument? Lessons are offered to 4th through 8th graders (for an additional fee) and are arranged during the school day.


Students in grades 6-8 are encouraged to join our Forensics team to have fun while they gain valuable training and experience in public speaking that can help them in their future endeavors.

There are many categories in Forensics such as: oratory, prose, poetry, humorous solo, serious solo, group interpretation, group acting, informative speech, persuasive speech, demonstration, infomercial and news reporting. Practice is held once a week from mid-January to early March from 3-4pm. Fun and exciting tournaments are scheduled on Saturdays in February and March and usually include a DJ with food available for purchase.

Students earn ribbons (and sometimes trophies) based on their performances and schools are usually eligible to win trophies. Contact Mrs. Bowers for more information.



Scouting is a great program that helps parents teach their sons how to make good decisions throughout their lives and give them confidence as they become the adult leaders of tomorrow.

According to the Chess Scholars, “Current research has shown a strong link between chess and academic performance in a variety of areas, including mathematics and language arts. Also, chess has been proven to enhance children’s motivation, concentration, focus, social skills and creativity.” Chess Scholars offers an after school chess club at MQS for students in K5 through 8th grade for an additional fee.

The club meets once a week for six weeks from 3:05-4:05pm in fall and again in spring and each session includes interactive teaching and guided practice with an experienced coach. A chess competition with pizza and prizes is held on the last day. Registration forms are sent to families through the Wednesday folder a few weeks before the club begins.
