Brain Busters is a quiz bowl competition that uses a lock-out buzzer system for 7th and 8th grade students. It is open to anyone interested in competing. Competition questions are about all subjects and current events. Meetings will be held during/after school to practice. The team meets once per month per division, during the school day.

Interact and React Club is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. The Interact and React clubs are sponsored by Midland Park/Wyckoff Rotary club, which provide support and guidance, but the clubs are self-governing and self-supporting.

Each year, Interact and React clubs complete many community service projects, and participates in many of the town events such as Midland Park Day, tree lighting and town parade. Students run two large community service projects: a fashion show and a car show to raise funds to donate to a local cause, the Gift of Life Program or St. Jude’s Hospital.
