Activities and Clubs
There's always something happening at John Hersey High School!
Students can meet new friends, learn new skills, stay physically healthy, and get involved in their school community. Activities are both seasonal and ongoing throughout the school year. Additionally, students are more likely to engage in healthy behaviors and succeed academically when they feel connected to the school.
Many of the most rewarding and memorable experiences students have come from involvement in co-curricular activities. John Hersey High School offers a wide variety of such opportunities through our various clubs and organizations. Our co-curricular programs promote confidence, teamwork, greater academic success, and responsible social behavior.
There is an activity for every Hersey student who chooses to become involved. Some groups have a history within our school, while other clubs have been formed more recently to meet the changing interests of students. Faculty and staff encourage Hersey students to get involved and participate in any of several organizations of interest. Your high school years will pass extremely fast, however, friendships you develop and memories you make will last a lifetime. Get involved and make your high school years memorable, both for yourself and the many lives you will touch!
Those interested in beginning a club should take the following steps:
- The first step would be to meet with Ron Kiolbassa, Associate Principal for Activities and Operations. The purpose of this meeting is to gain an understanding of the proposed club including mission and purpose.
- If we determine that the club does not violate any board or school policy and does not subject the school community to safety concerns, the student(s) is responsible for finding a staff member who is willing to sponsor the club, possibly as a volunteer as we may not be budgeted for an additional club.
- All new sponsors are required to meet with the Associate Principal for Activities and Operations before any meetings are held. If the club is approved, potential stipends, times, dates, and club activities must be discussed in advance.
