Clubs and Organizations

We at Valley School District encourage all students to participate in extracurricular activities. We believe these activities help build social, teamwork, and leadership skills. If you are interested in joining one of our established clubs, please contact the sponsor listed below for meeting times.


Organizations

National Honor Society
Sponsor: Kristina Phares

We established the Valley High School Honor Society to recognize outstanding high school students who demonstrate excellence in academics, leadership, community service, and character. Our chapter not only recognizes these students, but we challenge them to continue toward their dreams with scholarship offerings for college.

Future Business Leaders of America
Sponsor:
Jennifer Juliette

Welcome to the largest and oldest student business organization in the world! As part of this organization, we learn about and participate in leadership conference and business competitions, putting our knowledge to work in practical ways.

FCCLA
Sponsor: Jarah Politte

Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America exists to promote personal growth and leadership development through family and consumer sciences education. With the family as its central focus, FCCLA members address societal issues through creative skills, problem solving, decision making, fundraising, and building interpersonal communication skills.

Student Council
Sponsor:
Rebecca Barnes

Student council engages our student body through hands-on democracy and leadership training. Elected student leaders help share ideas, interests, and student concerns with school administrators. Student council members organize school-wide activities, social events, and community projects to increase student morale and bonding.  

Yearbook
Sponsor:
Jennifer Juliette

In Yearbook, we tell your story through pictures and text. Delving into all aspects of publishing, we work all year to create a memory book detailing all the fun events and people that make high school so unforgettable.

Shop Club
Sponsor:
David Gray

Our goal in Shop is to provide all students with the opportunity to develop skills and learn safety procedures using machines and tools that will allow them to create and/or fix projects at home and in their career.

Drama Club
Sponsor:
 Wendy Lauer

The Drama Club will meet to learn about acting, play production, and stage work with the hopes of offering productions for our school and community. This club provides an opportunity for our students to practice public speaking and learn about theatre.

Art Club
Sponsor :
Kathy Grajek

The Valley R-6 Art Club consists of junior high and high school students who display a love of art. The club meets after school on a regular basis to make art and work on projects for art competitions. We volunteer time to the community for art related projects, painting murals, and arts advocacy. Our club members enjoy open studio time to hone our artistic skills and fellowship with other art-minded students. The Art Club works very hard to raise funds so that we can take trips to broaden our artistic horizons beyond what is possible in the school setting.

Science Club
Sponsor: Trina Pritchett

The purpose of this club is to promote and encourage interest in science by supporting learners’ enthusiasm, to bridge the gap between formal educations, gain a more comprehensive knowledge of science, and to make the study of science more interesting. We hope to popularize scientific consciousness and scientific culture among the youth.


Fundraising

The principal must approve all fundraising projects. Only two fundraisers may be planned per year, per organization. All other necessary funds must come from student dues or community sponsorships. The Junior class may be exempted from this ruling if their fundraising efforts are directed towards prom.



Starting a Club

If you’re interested in starting a new club at our school, consider this:

  • Is there much interest in your idea?
  • Do you have a sponsor in mind?
  • Have you spoken with your administration? (There may be specific steps you need to take in your school district.)
  • Do you have a written plan? (What do you want to accomplish with this club?) 

If you can answer all these questions, it may be time to start making some flyers and inviting your classmates!
