ASB and Clubs/Affinity Groups

Associated Student Body (ASB)

Elected members of the student body take a leadership role in planning all student life events, including homecoming, dances, Spring Carnival, Valentine candy-grams, and much more. 

Clubs & Affinity Groups

Clubs offer an opportunity for students to develop leadership skills, creativity, and social engagement. Because all clubs and affinity groups work with a faculty advisor, they also reinforce a culture of trust and communication between teachers and students. They are a way for all of us to get to know each other a little better and to expand our horizons. 

Here are some examples of past and present clubs and affinity groups:

  • Diversity Council
  • Book Club
  • Coffee Club
  • Pizza Club
  • True Crime Club
  • Environmental Club
  • Art Club
  • Film Club
