The clubs also volunteer their time serving as ushers for the Dallas Theatre Center. Also, the Theatre UIL play for 2006-2007: "Bits and Pieces" advanced to the Area competition, the first time in the JHHS Theatre history, and the first time in 10 years that a school from M.I.S.D. advanced from the District level.

The John Horn Jaguar Band is one of the greatest organizations ever. Hardworking kids with a passion for music. They practice every mornin and Tuesday nites for UIL competition on Wednesday October 15, 2008. I’m amazed at what the band is accomplishing at this point. As a member I love saying Im with the band because it is the best feeling in the world. The band is truly a remarkable group with the best potential and I know and they know what we have to do and how we have to do it. The only thing I can say is its full speed ahead from here and only God can guide our feet now as long as we do what we gotta do.TK10 4 LYFE BABIEE!!!!!!!
