Extra Curricular

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES

At Landon Middle School we have students from many different backgrounds and cultures. We hold sixth grade activities separate from seventh and eight grade activities, as set forth by district requirements. Sixth grade social activities may include skating parties and a dance held each February. At school partes, the students enjoy music that a professional disc jockey provides. Parent volunteers provide snacks and refreshments for those students who attend. Most of our students participate in these activities.

SCHOOL PLAYS

Drama/musical productions are presented at Landon each year. These provide an opportunity for sixth, seventh and eighth graders to become involved in an extra curricular activity. Production involves about six weeks of rehearsals and much support from the Landon staff, parents/guardians/care providers, and the Topeka theater community.

MUSIC PERFORMANCES

Each December and May the music classes, chorus, band and orchestra, present a performance as part of their curriculum. Community, parents/guardians/care providers, and friends are invited to attend. Music classes also perform at community events throughout the school year.

SPORTS

Extra curricular sport activities at Landon Middle School are for seventh and eighth graders only and include basketball, tennis, football, volleyball, and track. The athletic program is strong in participation and any eligible student may be on a team. The sport activities take place after school. All students are welcome to watch and support their team. All outdoor events are free. The eighth grade students have a "play night" which is held in the evening to allow parents/guardian/care providers an opportunity to watch their son/daughter participate in our sports program without having to take time off from work. Please contact Kerry Dillon, AC for information.

STUDENT COUNCIL

Student Council members are volunteers who feel a passion about Landon and what our school represents. They are required to maintain appropriate grades and attitudes in the classroom. We meet twice a month, normally on Fridays from 2:45-3:30. The StuCo members run the concession stands during home volleyball, girls' basketball and boys' basketball games. StuCo members become involved in a variety of activities that benefit the Landon and Topeka communities. For example, they collect items for various community agencies during several months of the school year and adopt a family at Christmas to make someone's Christmas holiday a little better. If you are interested in becoming a member of Student Council, please see one of the teacher representatives to find out more about it.
