Clubs at Rogers
The form to start a new club will reopen in January.
One of our campus goals is to encourage students to explore, identify, and develop their strengths and passions. Clubs are a great way to build positive relationships and encourage students to find a sense of belonging at school. Research shows students who feel connected at school are more likely to put effort into academics.
Students have two options when it comes to clubs:
1. Join a Club: Check the Student Clubs webpage to see what clubs are happening and join one. There are no sign-up sheets, just find one you like and attend. If it is an organization like National Junior Honor Society, Student Council, or Speech & Debate Team, check their webpages for more information.
2. Start a Club: If you're interested in starting your own club, these are the steps you need to take:
- Find a faculty sponsor. The faculty sponsor will be present at meetings in a supervisory capacity only.
- Find a meeting place (Usually the sponsor teacher's classroom).
- Decide on a day and time. Clubs can happen before school, after school, or at lunch. Clubs can happen weekly, every other week, or monthly. However, it can only be one day a week. (Ex. The club can only meet on Wednesdays, not Wednesdays and Fridays.)
- Once you have these items in place, submit a Club Approval Form below. You will receive an email if your club is approved.
If you have any questions about existing clubs, contact the sponsor of the club or organization.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. How many clubs can I join and how do I join a club?: You can join as many clubs as you want. However, you might need to talk to your parents because if it is an afterschool club, they will need to know what time to pick you up. There's also no need to sign up, you just show up to the club you want to attend.
2. Can I make more than one club?: You can only make one club.
3. Can I quit a club?: Yes, if you need to stop going to a club, you are more than welcome to stop.
4. Can I quit a club I made?: Yes. You can either disband the club so the club will no longer meet, or if you find another club member to take over the club so it can continue.
5. Can my club meet twice a week? No, clubs can be only once a week.
