Clubs are finally in full swing here at New Haven High and have already started doing huge things for our school and community. New Haven High offers a wide selection of clubs, including FBLA, FCCLA, NHS, StuCo, FCA, and SCA. Being in a school with about 200 students, these clubs get most people involved.
“I think my favorite club would be NHS because it does more for you in the long run, and it gives you the opportunities that other clubs can't,” Alexis Sidwell replied.
“FCCLA, because I love the field trips we take every year. I feel like it brings all of the classes closer together,” Julia Unnerstall commented.
Tim Madden told me NHS is his favorite club; when asked why, he responded with, “I ate ice cream.”
Each of the clubs here at NHHS stands for something different. National Honors Society is a club that focuses on service in the community and in the school itself. It is for the elite students who work hard for their grades and in their communities.
Family, Community, Career Leaders of America is a club made to help those in our community; whether it be babysitting teachers’ children or holding stuffed animal drives, FCCLA helps in various ways in our local community.
Future Business Leaders of America is a club specifically to help encourage people to join the business world. With competitions held for our district, this club takes pride in readying people for the real world.
Fellow Christian Athletes is a club for athletes who are a part of the Christian faith. They hold events and accept people for their beliefs and encourage them in all their sports activities.
Student Council is a club made for leaders of this school, for people who are willing to do what is needed to build school spirit.
Shamrock Conservation Association is a club made to help our environment, to help clean the earth, and to make it a healthier place for everyone.
What do all these clubs have in common? These clubs help everyone find a place in the school. Or, at least give options for students. Clubs are a place that gives people something to work hard at, a chance to be a better you. If you want to help the community, clean the parks, or just be surrounded by good people, join one of the clubs above.
