The cheerleading squad at Friendswood Junior High consists of an eligible group of students devoting most of their time to promoting school spirit, supporting our athletes, and serving as model students around our campus. They appear at games, parades, pep rallies, and many more events throughout the year. The competitive squad represents FJH at several area competitions, as well as NCA Nationals in Dallas. As disciplined athletes, FJH Cheerleaders are devoted, energetic, and responsible for FJH’s upbeat spirit!
The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognized outstanding junior high students. It is more than just an honor roll as the NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship. The organization was founded in 1929, and is a “junior” version of the high school’s National Honor Society. Requirements include, but are not limited to maintaining a scholastic average of 90+, remain active in at least one school or community activity, and attendance at monthly meetings.
FJH Student Council is an open invitation student leadership organization. The club is responsible for hosting many fun events, like Decorating a Float & Riding in the FISD Homecoming Parade, Red Ribbon Week, Trick or Treating for Canned Goods, Holiday of Hope Toy Drive, Christy’s Wish Bingo Night, and the February Social. Our group encourages student leadership in schools and communities, and empowers young adults to use these skills throughout their lives.
Our UIL Academic competition is open for 7th and 8th graders who would like to compete academically. “The events are designed to complement and expand upon what students learn in the classroom, both through learning specific subject knowledge, and through learning skills that are valuable in many disciplines.” Starting in early December students may pick up an “Intent to Participate” form from Mrs. Crisp in room 7100. Mrs. Crisp will take forms for one week and fill in areas accordingly. Our team will practice after school on the Thursdays from 3:50 -5:00 PM – students will need to be picked up at 5:00 PM in the front of the school by the flagpole. The date of the actual meet is TBA. Students who return their forms will then receive more information at our first practice. We have a fabulous UIL academic team.
