Clubs, Teams &
What if I want to participate in a club or team or BOTH?
All clubs and extra-curricular activities are open to all HSFI students. Most clubs and activities meet after school on specific days of the week. The number of times per month that a club or activity meets depends on that specific activity. You can find out about all clubs and activities by constantly checking all the different forms of communication we have at HSFI – Email, Website, Jupiter Grades, Bulletin Boards, Whiteboard in the Lobby, TV Screens, Morning Announcements, and Social Media. Twice a year there are ‘Club Fairs’ In the student lounge where clubs promote and recruit students who wish to participate.
What if I want to start a club / extra-curricular activity?
Creating a new club is encouraged. There are 2 requirements:
(1) You need to identify other students who want to participate with you in this activity
(2) You need to get an HSFI staff member to supervise the activity.
Once you have accomplished these 2 tasks, you would complete a ‘Club Charter’ request and submit it for approval.
If you have any questions about this process please contact Ms. ArcaMay in room 819.
