School activities play an important role in the lives of Meyzeek Middle School students and embody the mission, philosophy, and objectives of Meyzeek. They serve as a source of pride and are a showcase for the talents of our students. In addition, they provide opportunities for in-depth school community experiences.

School activities are an essential part of the education of students, because they foster the development of character, sportsmanship, risk taking, teamwork, and other life skills.

Participation in extracurricular activities at Meyzeek is voluntary and a privilege extended to those student athletes who are willing and able to make the commitment and meet the expectations of our athletic department.
