The Club Fair is this week in STaR and is open to all students, staff members and teachers. Students have the opportunity to go to the Hall of Excellence and look around. 

There will be a total of 45 club booths. Teachers have a schedule for which day each STaR will attend. 

Students started several new clubs, including Environmental Club, Bible Club, and Bird Club. These clubs, as well as established clubs like Robotics, FCA, Key Club, Pubs Club and Skateboard Club, will be there.

“The club fair is especially useful to freshman and sophomores because they have the opportunity to look around and see a bunch of club options. This way they can have multiple club possibilities to join,” Assistant Principal Tracy McMahen said. 

Each of these clubs can provide benefits and opportunities to students. Students can make new friends, discover their special talents and interests and learn how to effectively work with others. 

“I enjoyed going to the Club Fair today and may think about investing time in a club,” Freshman Kaydence Doane said.  “I’m a freshman this year and thought looking at all of the different clubs was cool.”

Clubs also find this event beneficial because they are able to find new recruits for the year. They draw people in to their stations by using flashy signs and displaying sample materials.

The Club Fair runs each day during STaR for students to visit.
