California Junior Scholarship Federation is an organization established to honor students who have earned superior grades in school.  The chapter at Lodi Middle was established in 1976.  Each semester students apply and based on their grades are invited to join.  We honor and serve the community by participating in various events like Coastal Clean Up, Lodi Lodi, sponsoring a school dance, helping with our Fall Carnival, and fun field trips.

The Robotics Club is an afterschool program designed to provide students the opportunity to build robots and compete in local robotics competitions. As an extension of the school's Project Lead the Way engineering program, students use their engineering skills as well as their creativity and teamwork to design and program a robot capable of competing against other high school and middle school teams in the area. The club allows students to advance their understanding of Automation and Robotics, which is the first 7th grade class in the engineering program, and develop skills like industrial design, computer programming and process documentation that will be critical in the modern workforce.
