Activity Fair to be held tomorrow 9/30

The annual BHS Activity Fair will be held at the end of the day tomorrow, Wednesday, 9/30, in the high school cafeteria. Most BHS clubs and activities will have tables set up so that students of any grade, but freshmen and new students in particular, can learn about and ask questions of the officers of each club. Some clubs play music, offer candy, etc., which creates a lively, welcoming atmosphere for new members. Freshmen will be dismissed from 7th period ten minutes early, in order to fully enjoy the activities among themselves.

Joining a club can offer students a chance to connect to the school community through an area of common interest. There are clubs in every area: academic (ex. Factathalon, Poetry, Math League), cultural (French Club, Multicultural Club, African Students Association), political (Students for Environmental Action, Debate, Spectrum), service (OPEN, Students Against Destructive Decisions, Adopt-a-Class) or just plain fun (Anime, Hip Hop Dance, Idle Hands Improv). In total, there are 45 clubs and activities at BHS, so there is something for everyone.

During recent small group meetings with their counselors, all freshmen were given a list of every BHS club, along with the advisor's name and room number. Club meetings are publicized through morning announcements and on the Daily Bulletin, which is listed daily on Mr. Larkin's blog.

So get involved! Join a club and have some fun!
