Sports have never been your thing, you are getting tired of ballet class and you want to get involved with something else at school other than acadmics that you might enjoy. Archer clubs are always looking for new members.

There is a wide range of different clubs at Archer. At the beginning of each school year, students attend the Club Fair. The club fair is an event when students can sign up for clubs that might interest them. The diversity of the clubs shows how different all the students are, as each club was created by a student.

This year’s club fair was at lunch on Wednesday, September 17. This year, Student Council made it easier for the students to find a club they could make the meetings to: the tables were arranged in sections depending on the day they met.

Clubs tend to be student-run with an adult supervisor. However, each club needs as many members as they can get. A club does not get finalized or confirmed until November. To be considered as an “official club”, each club needs at least ten steady members by the deadline. If not, the club can wait to try again next year to recruit members and try to get the club going again.

If you were not able to attend the club fair, the time each club meets is located below.

    Kayry- this is so helpful! I’m always trying to plan out what clubs I want to join, but can never figure out which do and don’t have time for. Thanks for laying this out so clearly.
