News: Philosophy, Cranes, & Donuts: Club Rush Preview
This year marks the formation of several clubs on campus, along with the growth of pre-existing ones at M-A.
Many new clubs are food-related, including the Breakfast Club, the Panini Club, and People’s Noodles. The Panini Club has goals of providing “affordable, healthy lunch for students” with the help of the Second Harvest Food Bank (and clearly paninis), while People’s Noodles aims to “feed the masses” with a slogan of “Unity Camaraderie Charity.” The Donut Club’s leadership and members have been revitalized after the graduation of its primary members and has already experienced a successful start to the school year.
Many students at M-A are making their dreams of helping other children a reality: She’s the First hopes to improve girls’ education in developing countries while another charity organization, the Thousand Crane Club uses crane folding to “inspire hope” at children’s hospitals.
“Applying the Socratic Method to everyday life,” the Philosophy Club has been formed to engage students in thoughtful discussion. SEEDS, formed by AP Environmental Science students, aspires to promote environmental awareness and inspire activism.
With a focus on extracurriculars, the Skateboarding and Rock & Roll clubs hope to expand participant’s abilities and learn new techniques.
For those not on the school team, TrueSync is M-A’s informal dance team with an objective of “uniting M-A’s dancers.” Another club with an emphasis on unity is Pride Pals: bringing together diverse groups at M-A, and demonstrating our motto of “Strength in Diversity.”
In terms of athletics, WHAM, the collective 7th Woman, 12 Hombres, and 6th Man group has been revived along with the 7th Woman club specifically. The Volleyball Club is an inclusive group for boys who wish to play volleyball or anyone who just enjoys the sport.
Come by the PAC patio this Friday, October 4th to sign up for these clubs and check out many more!
