Key Club 

In Key Club, they are going to decorate for Valentine’s Day and have a game night at the Spring Creek Senior Citizen center. At the last meeting, the club had a great team building event that turned out fun. 

National Honor Society 

In NHS, members are acquiring their hours for third quarter. The officers congratulate those who logged enough hours in the first semester to remain in the club. 

Student Council 

The fall months in student council are primarily occupied with many small projects rather than one big one. Homecoming week (September), Acts of Love (early spring), and Prom (late spring) are the big events of the year, so the club has some freedom in their agenda between Homecoming and Acts of Love. This year Student Council participated in the Festival of Trees, planned a blood drive and invested more time and money into the Deck the Halls efforts. This time of year is certainly not less busy than any other, but it is nice to have an open agenda that the ASB leaders can set. Starting this week, however, the Acts of Love committee will be in full force. Student Council is very excited to make Acts of Love better than ever, so they have their work cut out for them for the next few months. 


TSA Club is preparing for State Competition, which is the first week in March.
