Creston's Academic Pursuit teams have a proud tradition in competition with the other middle schools in Marion County. Students compete in "Brain Game" type matches on Wednesday afternoons from November until mid-February. Five students at a time vie to answer questions against students from another school. The season concludes with a Saturday County Tournament in February. Each grade level competes separately, with its own coach and practice schedule.
The Art Club will meet periodically throughout the school year and is open to all 7th and 8th grade students with a love for art. Students must sign up to attend each session and sign-up times and locations will be given on morning announcements. All levels of talent are welcome...the only requirement is enthusiasm for expression through art!
Boys to Men is a mentoring group that started 6 years ago at Creston Middle School. The mission is to pair up and coming 6th graders with some of our top 8th grade students. We discuss things like decision making, accountability, hard work and etiquette.
The Creston Spring Play will be held on Thursday, March 1st and is open to all 7th and 8th graders.

All play a major part in making the final production a major hit. Students need to watch morning announcements for sign up times and locations.
