Students read a variety of high-interest books, collaborate in discussions, create critical questions, and compete in a district-wide event.  Sunshine State books are selected for their wide appeal, literary value, varied genres, curriculum connections, and/or multicultural representation.

Builders Club - The Builders Club at Mariner Middle School is a community service club sponsored by the Harney Point Kiwanis organization. Our students have the opportunity to develop leadership skills and a strong moral character, while giving back to those in need, both locally and globally. We participate in various types of community service, such as beach cleanups, fundraising for animal shelters and The Red Cross, spreading holiday cheer at local assisted living facilities, participating in a field day for special needs adults, sending cards and letters to U.S. Troops and sponsoring food drives at our school. We hold a meeting after school twice a month and typically have one community service event every other month with our sponsor, Mrs. Zuman.

Cadet Leadership Program (Cadets)The Cadet Leadership Program (CLP), or “Cadets,” is a community service-based program designed for middle school students, and emphasizes leadership skills, problem-solving techniques, and teamwork while offering an opportunity for a positive interaction with Law Enforcement.

While in the program, Cadets will learn about the dangers of drugs, campus violence, bullying, social media, peer pressure, and many other issues today’s youth may encounter both on and off-campus.  Above all, the program stresses the importance of accountability, responsibility, and integrity.  The Cadet Leadership Program is led by our SRO, Officer Clint Atkinson.
