As a student at Lake Jackson Intermediate School, you have the opportunity to become involved in a wide variety of clubs and activities. Below you will find a list of some of the clubs at LJI along with sponsor e-mail links.  We hope that you become involved and enjoy these opportunities!

Black Cat Productions

All LJI students, whether they are taking the drama class or not, will have the opportunity to audition for at least one "open-casting" production per school year. If selected, these students will work together for many hours after school over a 6-8 week period to create sets, props, and costumes, and to rehearse their various on-stage roles which may include acting, singing, and/or dancing. Then, the group will perform their production multiple times for a public audience.
