Nashoba’s Clubs Look to Get the Word Out During the Activity Fair

Grace Fiori, Chief Editor

This past Tuesday, September 17th, Nashoba held the Activity Fair during lunch. The courtyard was packed with students milling around the various tables set up, featuring the flags, posters, photos, and creations of various clubs at Nashoba. 

People gathered around the DECA table, touting examples of student projects and images from previous competitions, learned more about the Best Buddies program, and signed up for the Drama Club. The Art Club, Student Council, German Club, and Interact Club also had tables, where members talked with students and potential new attendees. 

The Green Team, which meets on Mondays, recently cleaned up the courtyards and fixed up the greenhouse, and are looking for people interested in Earth Day activities and discussions on how to better improve the sustainable practices of Nashoba. 

The American Sign Language (ASL) Club wanted to reach out to people interested in learning more about ASL and how to sign. Knowledge of ASL isn’t required to participate, but you can learn how to say your name, greet people, and begin to understand the alphabet and structure of ASL. If you are interested, they meet on Mondays and Wednesdays, alternating weekly. 

GSA, Nashoba’s Gender and Sexuality Alliance, had a table advertising their club which meets the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month. They talk about issues at Nashoba, go to regional meetings, and “provide a safe space for all students in our LGBTQ community and their straight allies.” 

The Red Cross Club, which meets alternating Thursdays after school in room 207, helps raise money for the Red Cross organization and holds fundraisers and programs to advocate for the cause. 

As the activity fair wrapped up at the end of fourth lunch, many clubs were excited to welcome new members and see what great ideas they can bring to the Nashoba community.
