Article: What’s with these new clubs?Published by tara.pina on Sat, 10/14/2017 - 19:42
Clubs as we all know, maybe some of you don’t, is a time after school when you can do art, math, board games, etc… So why do we all of a sudden have it now instead of having it earlier in the year? Mrs. Merrell, who is in charge of the clubs and she’s one of the special education teachers, had this to say, “ The school had a grant for it so I had to do it. “ But why did they, the school, give us clubs? Mrs. Merrell explained, “ We wanted to give students something to do after school. It seems that Mrs. Merrell has explained why we have clubs now but what do the students think?
Isaac Sedgwick, a 7th grader here at SJHS, had this to say what he thinks about his art club, “ My art club is pretty good. “ And Emme Trunnel, another 7th grader here at SJHS, had this to say about her chess club, “ My chess club is pretty fun. “ And last but not least let’s see what Samantha Kenworthy, yet again another 7th grader here at SJHS, had to say about her math club, “ Yes, I think it’s good. “ Another question we are faced with is has this helped these three students connect with other kids in their clubs? Isaac Sedgwick, again ,had this to say too, “ Yes, it has helped me meet other kids in my club(s). “ But I guess it had a different effect on Emme Trunnel here, this is what she said, “ No, not really. But it is still fun. “ On the other hand Samantha Kenworthy had a different answer, “ Ya, sometimes I get to meet and greet other kids who have the same interests I have. “ I guess the students aren’t too disappointed or too thrilled about these new clubs.
In conclusion it seems that we have all learned a bit more about what these clubs are about and how these clubs came to be.
