Woodgrove Clubs 2012-13

This year at Woodgrove, club meetings will take place during FLEX.  Four designated club times (A, B, C, and D) rotate each Tuesday, allowing students the opportunity to join up to four different clubs. 

Popular service-oriented clubs include Do Something Now, FCCLA, International Service Organization, Key Club, Green Team, and Partners Club.  DSN and Key Club focus on local community service, while ISO focuses on volunteerism on an international level.  Green Team plays a key role in Woodgrove’s recycling efforts, and Partners Club works with special needs students.

“I joined FCCLA because we get to help people,” said Junior Laurel Cope.

“I want to volunteer more, so I joined DSN,” Junior Rebecca Williams said.  “FCCLA goes along with my Early Childhood Development class.”

Academic clubs include Battle of the Books, Forensics Club, Scholastic Challenge, Creative Writing Club, Literary Magazine, Mu Alpha Theta (Math Honor Society), foreign language clubs, and honor societies.

Junior Julia Hiser, a member of the Academic Team and Mu Alpha Theta, chose her clubs because “nerds have more fun!”

Clubs which play a part in making decisions for the school include the four Class Councils, SCA, and the PTSO.

“I joined SCA because I like planning things,” said Freshman Elizabeth Nerantizis.

Though many students join clubs, not everyone has the opportunity. Senior Ian Cernetich works at both Harris Teeter and Taco Bell.

“My time after school is limited, so I take advantage of the time given during FLEX to do homework,” Cerentich said.  “I had wanted to do SCA because it looks good on college applications.”

Student involvement in clubs can provide students with a sense of fulfillment, or even help the world around them.

Junior Joseph Keim joined Latin Club and Partners Club because, “It makes me feel responsible.”
