Well, most colleges only look at your high school grades and extra cirriculars, but if you can keep that up through high school, and do well on SAT/ACT, you're doing great!
My only advice would be don't stress yourself out. Remember, grades are most important, then test scores, then at least 3-5 good, strong extra cirriculars. Don't over schedule yourself. Also, seek out leadership within clubs, and volunteer! Community service looks great in addition to extra curriculars, seek out an organization outside of school that interests you. I would suggest in addition to the nursing home and library, try to get into a hospital, or organizing fundraising for a charity.
Your doing great keep it up :)
in short, kid, you're in middle school.
live your life according to what you want to do, not an application or résumé.
you've got a lot of time ahead of you.
