Annual Club Walk Inspires Involvement
CHS held its annual Club Walk this week in the Grand Hall during lunches sponsored by the Student Council. Students were invited to browse through colorful trifold displays and chat with club representatives to learn about, as well as sign up for, the many club offerings available at school. Clubs such as FFA, BLU Club, HOSA, BETA, Mural Club, Film Club, FCA, National Honor Society, FCCLA, French Club, and many more were represented.
Student Body President and senior Ethan Good said, “One of Student Council's goals is to get every student involved in the school. One of the easiest ways to do so is through clubs. Clubs are a great way to meet new people who have the same interests as you. Our school has almost every club imaginable, with new proposals coming in every week. Each club had the opportunity to make a poster or tri-fold providing information about what their club does, when they meet, and what events they organize or participate in.”
The Club Walk gives students a chance to see and hear about some of the school clubs and organizations they might not have known about otherwise. Clubs offer a chance for students to get involved in extracurricular activities, make new friends, explore their interests, and perform community service. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, extracurricular participation has a positive influence on consistent attendance, academic achievement, and aspirations for continuing education beyond high school.
“Club walk, like every year, was an evident success. Club walk is designed to motivate students to get involved and join new clubs. There's nothing better than seeing more and more students get involved in our school and clubs,” said Ethan.
