Clubs & Organizatons

Clubs and organizations provide students with many positive experiences that help them to become well-rounded individuals who are ready for college or the workplace. Joining a club gives students a chance to explore their interests and talents.
 
Participation in extra-curricular activities will foster creative, social and physical skills that are desirable qualities to colleges and future employers. Involvement can strengthen self-esteem, build lasting friendships and create a lifetime of memories!


Want to start your OWN club? Many clubs are created during the school year based on student interest! If you would like to start your own club (Ex. Rubik's Cube Club) all you need to do is find a teacher who is willing to be your sponsor and supervise club meetings.

There is something for everyone! Get involved!
 Please direct any questions about a club to the club sponsor.
