To give students a sneak peek of the various clubs available to them, the school’s first activity fair was held during Seminar on Thursday, Aug. 27.

Many different clubs were presented during the fair, including, the Thespian Club, Dr. Who: Sonic Screwdriver Club, Dungeons and Dragons and many more.

All freshmen and sophomores were required to attend.

Freshman were given passports to keep track of the tables they visited; at three of the tables in the South gym they had to have someone from the club sign their passport.

At the fair, students walked around from table to table, exploring the different clubs available. If they found one they were interested in, they had the chance to leave their contact information with the club.

“I think that it’s a great idea that our school gives kids the chance to be involved in clubs because they can be really fun and are a good way to make friends,” Cara Gibbs, sophomore member of Theatre Club, said.

Students in Theatre Club play games and participate in plays and musicals put on throughout the year.

Some of the clubs available to students double as classes during the school day, such as band, drill team, cheerleading, Orchestra, Choir, newspaper, yearbook, and photojournalism.

In addition, many colleges now look for student involvement in extracurricular activities. “It’s a great thing that our school has strong extracurricular programs for students to be involved in,” Candy Birch, activity director, said.
