Student Clubs

  • Any club with an *asterisk* is a SOCIAL club. Clubs without an asterisk are ASB clubs, which have an account with the school for the money that they fundraise throughout the school year. If you do not see a club you are interested in, you can petition to create a new social club. The deadline is September 23rd in order to be included in the upcoming Club Week (9/28-10/02). New clubs who miss this deadline can still be approved, but will not be featured in the upcoming Club Week, so Leadership will host an alternative event for them in the weeks to come.
